- There is a full-page image with bleed on the left-hand page and text on the right.
- Each line of text on the right side page is left-justified and between one and six words long (usually about four). The text as a whole is more or less centered (slightly toward the gutter).
- There are carry-over characters between books.
- There is a refrain. From "We're all in a hurry, we MUST get away..." to "...rollicking, frolicking, EVERYWHERE."
