Library Journal Review

We're not talking just cute knitted teddy bears here. Dalmeny's menagerie includes penguins, wart hogs, and raccoons as well as bear cubs, grizzlies, and polar bears‘more than 50 animals from around the world. The book groups animals in tableaus that picture them in their natural environment. For example, the "On Safari" scene includes an elephant, a rhino, a zebra, and a park ranger grouped around a waterhole on the African plains. Projects are classified as easy, straightforward, or challenging; instructions are clear and include full-color illustrations of each animal. Highly recommended for public libraries.
