I have both Katherine Dewey's books and both are ones I refer to again and again. She is truely an artist in creating realism and offers lots of practical advice on creating life-like animals in this book.

I always wanted to learn how to create realistic sculptures, but never knew where to start. This book, with its step-by-step instructions and excellent illustrations, is an excellent way to learn basic technique. It teaches you about the various clays available, how to use the various tools, and even how to make your own tools. Buy it.
