Be prepared for forty fine-feathered
friends to fly off your hook and put their feet up on your coffee table. Kerry
Lord's Edward's Menagerie was a runaway success and now she's back with Birds.

You'll be happy as a lark as
your crochet your way through this colourful collection of birds, including a
bashful Flamingo, romance-writing Owl and a politically incorrect Pheasant. Read all
about these kooky characters, their adorations and aversions, daydreams and
delusions, then crochet them for everyone you know friends and family.

Each bird can be crocheted in four different sizes making
over 160 different pattern possibilities - so pick your first project and get
started! The patterns use basic stitches, are grouped by difficulty and include
step-by-step technical guides for beginners, so there's no excuse to chicken

These loveable birds are quick to make using a supersoft
yarn in a sophisticated colour palette, and will become your best friends as
their larger-than-life personalities and easy-to-use techniques get their claws
into you.

Review quote

"This book is a hoot! (Pun intended...) Let me start by saying that I'm not naturally a fan of amigurumi, but this book by Kerry Lord may change all that. Just one perusal of this beautifully designed book--dedicated to the author's sweet little boy, Edward--has reminded me of just how much I do love birds and that perhaps this book will have me covered on more than a few Christmas gifts!" --Bonnie Bay Crochet

Edward's Menagerie-Birds has some of the most adorable toy birds that I have ever seen! There are 40 different types of birds, each with their own personality! The author put a tremendous amount of detail into each bird pattern, which makes them all adorable in their own way. --The Stitchin' Mommy
