Are you looking for Marionette (string puppets) mechanisms?  I am pretty sure it has the basics on moving mouths but can't remember if it has moving eyes.

I replied to your other post with a link to Dr. Puppet.  That would be a resource for a hand in mouth or Muppet style puppet.

Does this book have any instruction on making animal marionettes? I'm trying to find such a book for someone. I noticed it said this in the description.....

Making and Manipulating Marionettes is a superb guide to a craft and performance art that has fascinated audiences for over 2,000 years. Handsomely illustrated throughout, it presents precise instructions for the making of marionettes, both for plays and for acts in the variety tradition. All aspects of marionette design, construction, and control are covered, and there are rare insights into specialized designs and stringing techniques. Contents include an introduction to the marionette tradition and the principles and practicalities of marionette design; advice on materials and methods for carving, modeling, and casting puppet parts; detailed explanations for marionette control, stringing, and manipulation; step-by-step instructions for the construction and jointing of human and animal marionettes; and professional secrets for achieving a wide range of special effects.
