Review quote

"Some of the patterns are brilliant. For example, the 'tigerskin' rug is a masterpiece." --Wendy Knits

"If you like animals and want to knit some animal-inspired items for your home or to wear without actually harming any animals, this book has a lot of great ideas. Some of these might be fun for kids who are fans of animals, too." --About.com/Knitting

"I love when people do interesting things with knitting! When I heard about Louise Walker's new book, Faux Taxidermy Knits, I was instantly intrigued...Knitted taxidermy? Crazy cool!" --Tanis Knits
