The Art of Taxidermy

Sharon Kernot

from Text Publishing...

Lottie is fascinated with death. She collects birds, lizards and other small dead animals she finds, trying preserve them, to hold onto the life they once had. Her aunt tries to put a stop to this worrying obsession, but her father can see a scientistís mind at work, and he introduces her to the art of taxidermy. 

For Lottie, the beauty and tenderness she finds in her preserved creatures provide a way for her to feel close to the mother she lost. 

The Art of Taxidermy is an exquisitely imagined verse novel about sadness and loss, and the way art and beauty can help us make sense of it all.
