Various pages use pastels and black-and-white illustrations. The pastels are particularly charming. My favorite is the two-page spread on which the dove sweeps down to drop a twig for the struggling ant (12-13). This version has the second episode follow immediately on the first. The dove dozes beautifully in her tree (16-17) while the ant feels the ground tremble from approaching human steps. In all, there are 32 pages in this 4½ x 6 pamphlet.
