Huggable Crochet: Cute and Cuddly Animals from Around the World by Christine Lucas has 24 patterns for crocheting adorable animals. They are mostly from 8" to 15" tall. The dolphin is 22" long.
You'll find animals like a horse and cow to an octopus and snail to a giraffe and a lion. The kangaroo and penguin are cute, too. My favorite is the hippopotamus. She has a very interesting face.
Come, all you crafters. Christmas is on the way.
