This book has patterns from many designers. Some of them are more traditional-style softies (such as "albert monkey" - a monkey with long limbs and then dressed in overalls); others are a bit different (odd?) - a (friendly-looking) monster, an angel and a devil, a "plurbit" which kind of looks like a space alien :), etc.
