The book is almost a square but a little more vertical. It looks like the letters are written in a typewriter font. the writing and the pictures look like charcoal, heavy lead, or colored pencils. The inside cover looks like the pigeon is imaging himself driving a bus doing all type of stunts. The story actually begins on the first page right before the publishers page.The colors are dull, but the illustrations look like cartoons. They are also illustrates that take up the whole page. Most of them are solid colored (like dull pastels) with a character/ object drawn somewhere on the page and a thought/talking bubble. there are also 2 shared pages in the middle of the book with 8 separate illustrations with the pigeon trying to "talk you into" driving the bus. One page has no WRITTEN emotion. Then the ending shows another from or vehicle and the story ends/restarts a new scenario with the pigeon daydreaming about driving a semi truck. Easy read! I loved the illustrations; they were simple but said enough!
