You can use larger needle sizes; just use a bit thicker yarn. I used a size 2 for that dinosaur. You could even make the projects with worsted weight yarn and maybe size 4 needles. They'd come out a bit bigger but still pretty small and cute. Gauge is not critical for these.

just thought of another question: do the needles have to be teeny-tiny also? or can I use regular lengths of small guage needles? The ones pictured in the book look about as long as toothpicks.

You can definitely use regular lengths. I used a circular needle with 5" tips. Or you can use DPNs if you prefer.
