Linda Hendry is a children’s book author and illustrator. Her craft books include Making Picture Frames and Making Gift Boxes, and she illustrates the Pup and Hound series.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6-These books provide projects to delight pet owners and animal lovers. Each book begins with a description of the basic craft materials, a safety warning, and instructions with illustrations for the blanket sewing stitch. Although the titles have animal-specific crafts, they share some basic types of projects, with pet-theme variations. They both include directions for making a photo album, a treat container, a picture frame, a switchplate cover, jewelry, a child's accessory organizer, bookends, a lampshade, and more. Cat also has instructions for a catnip fish sewn from an old sock, a spider cat toy, and a doorknob cover. Dog additionally describes how to make a grooming caddy and a dog-collar cover. Every project is covered in a spread and finished products are shown in full-color photos. Materials are listed in well-delineated boxes; they are easily obtainable from the local discount store, fabric shop, or within the home. Full-sized patterns are included where necessary. Similar in format to Nancy Furstinger's Creative Crafts for Critters (Stoddart, 2001), Hendry's books focus more on projects with animal themes rather than on those for the pets themselves.
