What the Critics Say

"Those looking to make conventional crafts, obviously, should look elsewhere. Everyone else should sit down, have a laugh, and make your very own bean-and-leaf James Brown mosaic. The author and her brother have a considerable following among hip readers of humor, and the appeal of this book will certainly transcend the world of crafters." (Booklist)

    "A few laughs"

    The audiobook is well produced with music, and two narrators including Amy Sedaris. It was a fun listen, and comes with a PDF showing the hideous crafts. This is a fun spoof. It is a bit short though, less than 3 hours.

    "Weird and not funny"

    This book was a little too out there for me. Tried too hard to be outrageous and ended up falling on its face.

    "Amy Sedaris"

    I heard Amy on NPR and really liked her story telling, so I ordered this book. I was disappointed that she was not the narrator, and the way the theme of the story was played out did not meet my expectations of the author.

    I don't care for books when they are "acted out" in different voices; I prefer the story to merely be read, allowing me to add my interpretation of how the different characters would sound.
