The images in this book are realistic yet animated. The characters are all proportioned to their environment and, like all folk tales, the main characters are humanized with clothing and accessories. There is great amount of detail in the background of each picture, for example the lines in the trees are life like and textured. There is a separate image on each page involving text located above or below. Instead of there being a sharp line to break it up, the divider between text and image is a fade in color. This technique softens the over all look and makes it more child friendly.
