"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
