First off the animals are illustrated just beautifully in this book. The expressions on bear's face are great too. The illustrations do a great job of telling the story. I also think the illustrator did a good job using white space. I might as well say it I think this book is really good all the way around.
Great layout with lots of white space, big colorful text, and well-drawn characters. The floating animals bother me in a couple of the illustrations, but other than that I find this book very appealing.
