Cracking Animation: The Aardman Book of 3-D Animation gives a behind the scenes look at the creators of Wallace and Gromit and provides a unique guide to making of the animated films. The first part of the book sets Aardman's achievements and the history of the studio into the tradition of 3-D animation.

The main component of the book is a guide by Peter Lord, co-founder of Aardman, to the process of 3-D animation, culminating in a step-by-step description of how to create effective characters, a storyboard, sets, and eventually make an entire film.
