Clement C. Moore (1779–1863), an American scholar and poet, first wrote The Night Before Christmas in 1822 to entertain his children. A friend submitted it to a local newspaper, The Troy Sentinel, where it was published on December 23, 1823. Moore's delightful description of St. Nicholas and his eight flying reindeer has since become the definitive portrait of Santa Claus.

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.
