The illustrations are sketched out using little color; only the main focus of each page is colored, leaving the rest plain. The colors used appear faded washed out. The colors include greens, browns, blue, and the occasional red, yellow and orange. The backgrounds of most illustrations are bare leaving the attention on the characters and what is happening. The posture of the characters also adds to the story and the emotions. The reader knows the main character is an old man, not because the story states it is so, but rather because of his features and posture.
