More About the Author

The best seller Love You Forever has been voted Most Iconic Book Cover in a readers' poll conducted by CBC. Thank you to everyone who voted for Love You Forever.

Sheila McGraw was born in Toronto and began her career as an illustrator and copywriter for advertising agencies, retail fashion outlets and editorial publications. In 1986 she was approached by Firefly Books to illustrate "Love You Forever" written by Robert Munsch. As that book achieved success she began writing, illustrating, designing and photographing a string of highly successful children's and adult craft books which encompass some of her earliest influences of sewing and sculpting, painting and drawing. She also illustrated and/or wrote several bestselling children's picture books. "Love You Forever" went on to become a children's classic with more than 20 million in print and number one on the New York Times Bestseller list. McGraw's "Papier Mache for Kids" was awarded the prestigious Benjamin Franklin Award. Her artwork has been widely exhibited and represented by the Loch Galleries in Canada.

Sheila McGraw is painting and writing in Houston Texas. She is the mother of 3 grown sons.

Format: Paperback
This book is filled with an avalanche of information before you even get to patterns and instructions. Sheila has covered any questions you may have regarding the type of fabric to use and how to work with it, the differences in the filling materials and the finishing touches of eyes and noses. There are color photos of all the finished products and the instructions are easy to follow with color coded cutting and sewing details. This is a great buy for the information in these pages.

23 of 24 people found the following review helpful By "fionaraven" on May 29, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book contains the "typical" cuddlies that many toy books have (teddy bear, puppy dog), but also some great unusual critters (including a buzzard, a funny-not-scary monster, an alligator, and a fish) that other books tend to overlook. The instructions are pretty straightforward and the two critters I've made (the "party animal" cat and the monster) have turned out well and without glitches in the pattern. I want to make the buzzard, too, just have to get to the fabric shop to get a couple yards of black fleece.
My one complaint is that the patterns mostly need to be enlarged - and what is more, they are designed for photocopier enlargement only (pattern grids may be different on different pages, with instructions of what % to enlarge). Not all of us have ready access to a photocopier that enlarges! Besides this annoying step, the patterns are cool and unusual. There are things in here that little kids would like, things in here that a teen would enjoy (if they don't consider themselves too sophisticated) and things an adult (me) finds amusing.
