"Let's Tangle! is concise and easy to use. It has a simple, straightforward approach that gently encourages the new/shy learner to continually take the next step, thus enhancing confidence. . . . There are many worksheets, tangle tips, and unique ideas contained within its pages. The layout is beautiful and the paper carefully chosen to accept a variety of ink and pen products. The binding is ringed and lays flat for ease of drawing. Â It is thoughtfully designed and very, very encouraging for beginners!" --MD
''I received Let's Tangle! today and wanted to tell you how impressed I am with the book and how much I enjoy it. Everything from the size, the quality of the binding, the layout, fonts . . . I love it. As a CZT, I will refer to the table of contents when creating lesson plans for my classes. Your underlying concept of providing multiple interpretations of the same tangles is an important one that is often overlooked in many of the . . . books I've seen. I've also seen students struggle to copy what they see in these books, totally missing the point . . . This is a book that I personally will use and will recommend . . . I like your "Knightsbridge" pages in the back, for tangling in the white squares. I immediately began drawing Rixty (my current fave) and will weave it throughout this page I'm sure.'' --ML
