About the Author
Mitsuki Hoshi started her journey as a self-taught amigurumi maker when she purchased her first Mickey Mouse amigurumi kit. In 2002, she launched a website dedicated exclusively to amigurumi dogs. The site caught the attention of several dog magazines and became a huge hit. Today, as an accomplished amigurumi artist, her goal is to crochet everything from foods to animals. In her spare time, she works as an instructor, teaching students how to make amigurumi.
Her published works include Life of an Amigurumi Dog, Life of an Amigurumi Dog 2, Life of an Amigurumi Dog 3, Ami Ami Restaurant, Mitsuki Hoshi's Amigurumi Zoo, Amigurumi Cats and Friends, Mitsuki Hoshi's Traveling Amigurumi, and Adorable Amigurumi with Giant Heads.

The contents contains the following dogs: Chihuahua, Jack Russell Terrier, Toy Poodle, Shih Tzu, Dalmatian, Papillon, Boston Terrier, Bernese Mountain Dog, Hokkaido Dog, Japanese Shiba, and Bull Terrier.
The Chihuahua and Papillon patterns are almost identical. The Bull and Boston terriers look also very much alike, and both are reminiscent of the pug pattern in the first book. The Japanese Shiba and Chihuahua appears in both books 1 & 2. Methinks the publisher just pushed the author for another quick book to turn out without giving her the time to really develop fundamental differences between the dogs. Also, there seems to be a huge group missing from these books: bigger dogs. Mitsuki Hoshi seems to focus on toy breeds rather than bigger breeds, which has me scratching my head only because bigger breeds are quite popular too. Golden Labs, German Shepherds, and St. Bernards are all popular dogs and are left out.
If I had to suggest one of the two books, I would suggest the first one. Having both is just oddly disappointing.
Some of you may already be familiar with Mitsuki Hoshi's work from her website. According to the Visitor counter, which is about the only thing on her website I can actually read, most of her visitors (over 35,000) are from Japan (not surprisingly), but she also has about 1,400 visitors from the U.S. Her books have been translated from Japanese into several languages, including English, Dutch, and French. Mitsuki Hoshi's work has appeared in pet magazines as well as craft books, and she also teaches amigurumi classes.
Ami Ami Dogs 2 is the follow up to her Ami Ami Dogs: Seriously Cute Crochet, which was published in English by Harper Design in February. My amigurumi book collection is fairly small (Annie Obaachan's Amigurumi Animals: 15 Patterns and Dozens of Techniques for Creating Cute Crochet Creatures, June Gilbank's The Complete Idiot's Guide to Amigurumi, and Amy Gaines's Cute Little Animals (Leisure Arts #4271)), so I was looking forward to seeing the review copy for Ami Ami Dogs 2.
Ami Ami Dogs 2 is a great little book. As the name suggests, it is focused entirely on dog related patterns. There are "full size" (a strange word to use for amigurumi, I know!Read more ›
