Initial thoughts: Well-thought out organization of recipes, including fruity pops, creamy pops fancy pops and grown-up pops. Basically, there's something for everyone.

I like this Popsicle book because all of the recipes are incredibly simple. While I tend to have a preference for Mexican style paletas, I really appreciate that this book has a variety of styles including cake-inspired pops and also "adult" Popsicles with alcohol in them. Basically, there is something to please everyone!
This is perhaps my favorite "pops" recipe book to date. Divided into four sections: "Fruity Pops", "Creamy Pops", "Fancy Pops", and "Grown-Up Pops". The "grown-up section" pops include liquer--so count me out on them-- unless someone can advise on how I can adapt them to 'virgin' pops. :) As for the others--I can't wait to try them!
This book has great pictures and good easy to follow instructions. It has a few creative recipes though the majority are pretty simple and classic. Overall this good for finding basic popsicle recipes but if you are looking for more unique ideas you may not find as many as you hoped.
