If you've ever made a lopsided chick or an endearingly woolly bunny at infant school you'll be familiar with the strangely addictive pom-pom procedure.
Simply wind yarn around two circles of card, tie the resulting bundle around the centre, cut and fluff it - and you've made a pom-pom!
It seemed magical when we were five years old, and it remains positively irresistible as an adult distraction. "Pom-pom Pals" takes this venerable art into a whole new world.
These creatures won't be found in any petting zoo. From a streetwise Robopom to a cute Pomosaurus, these are pom-poms for the twenty-first century.
They've got looks and attitude, and some of them even have corners.
With basic instructions on how to make a pom-pom as well as step-by-step instructions and artworks for each of the 14 fuzzy pom-poms, these gorgeous creatures are quick and easy to make.
