The illustrations in this book are wonderful. They are abstract, very colorful, and every page is unique. The artist has a very interesting use of minimal lines causing the characters and object to be somewhat defined but still somewhat free-from at the same time, an example of this would be poppy’s nose, it is always defined by the same shaped black line. This illustrator used many techniques to give each object depicted the texture it needed to make it come alive by using different patterns of lines. I also love how the words are placed on the pages. When the story is going smoothly the words are all one size and they are either at the top or the bottom of the pages, but then when the girl is being a sourpuss the works are large and all over the page, adding a very chaotic feel to the story.
