There are a lot of cute crochet books out there, but I think this one is unique enough to find a niche. What stands out to me is that it gives multiple options for using some designs. So if you like the panda, but don't want a rug, there are other options available. I want to see the whole book just for the elephant. I really like the texture and construction of the ears. The difficulty ratings are helpful and I'm sure the left-handers appreciate the pointers for them. I think having rugs in the title will turn some people off, and I wasn't a huge fan of the panda design, so I would have liked to see more variety on the cover.
