I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, thank you!
While browsing Netgalley (I know I shouldn't do that) I came across Crap Taxidermy and I was immediately sold. I'm never too fond of stuffed animals myself, but when I saw that weird fox on the cover, I just knew I had to read this.
I laughed out loud! Some of these 'creatures' (I don't have a better word for it) are really ridiculous. And some of them look like they are actually on display somewhere. (I suppose it's not on a course of How NOT to stuff animals). Some of them have stares that will haunt your dreams, while others just look a bit neglected (as in eaten by moths).
I don't think this is a book that everyone will enjoy. But if you were to put in on a table in your living room, I think you would get some interesting conversations. If you feel you could do a better job, there is a DIY guide at the end of the book. I think I'll pass on that one. I once had to dissect a mouse (and that didn't really was a success. No, I don't want to talk about it) and I think I'll leave it at that. Also check out the blog this book was based upon: http://crappytaxidermy.com/
