There is a whimsical nature to this book. It has a very inviting cover for all ages. The pages match the feel of the cover, some filled with blue and others that are covered entirely in pictures. There are speech bubbles coming from the animals on every page that add to the silly nature of the book. The author has also gotten creative with adding items to the animals like glasses, hats, and a stethoscope. Each page has something so different that readers will stay engaged with the book through every page turn. The text is all over the page, but is really easy to follow. Each joke is spaced separately it its own region or box. The book is eye-catching and adds to the humor of the jokes.
