Review by Paula Moliver for the Hartford Knitting Examiner

Ana Paula Rimoli is synonymous with amigurumi. Amigurumi On the Go is her latest book. She has also written Amigurumi Toy Box, her third book, of cute crocheted friends and Amigurumi World and Amigurumi Two! For those of you who don't know what amigurumi is; it is the Japanese art of crocheting small stuffed toys, animals and inanimate objects with facial features. In Japanese "ami" means crocheted and "nuigurumi" means a stuffed doll.

Ana Paula has 30 patterns for crocheting kids' bags, backpacks and more in this book. Boys and girls will love the animal faced projects. Who couldn't use a backpack to tote around an apple in a cozy, a coin purse to hold change for a carton of milk and a pencil case . The designs are knit using worsted weight yarn in cotton fiber.

Its large print, easy to read and follow pattern rows are perfect to get you started. Large clear pictures help you decide which amigurumi accessory to crochet first. The General Guidelines have step by step line drawings for learning to chain and moving on to create a slip stitch, single crochet, half double and double are included. Ana will also show you how to increase and decrease in this section.

There is a Roundie, Octopus, Fish and other bags to choose from. They are cute, useful and the sizes vary to hold whatever they have in mind. These patterns would make a great gift. If you are new to crochet or just want to make some adorable totes for the kids, this one is for you.
Review from Susan D, Crochet Addict UK, February 2014

... Now this book made me smile sooo much! The bright colours and fun designs just brighten up any day. I am sure so many children will find their favorite animal among the designs... Ana talks you through everything you need to do to make all of the projects. Everything is covered from each of the stitches (including diagrams) to how to sew in a zip. I think they would make excellent starting school presents and I think some teachers might find them fun gifts as well. I think there is a really good mix of projects and a good mix of characters. If you have a young child then this book is full of things they are going to love... I may even make the owl book bag for myself ;-)
