Starrisa, around what year did you read this book? A range of years is fine. This will help narrow down the search.

Can you describe the illustrations - realistic/cartoony/cute, simple/detailed, painted watercolors/bold graphics, sunny/dark/muted colors/black & white?

Do they remind you of another illustrator or picture book author?

I read this maybe around...7-8 years ago? The book is cartoony, and it has mostly coloured illustrations accompanied by a few sentences on each page. But since my memory is bad I am not 100% sure but I feellike from what I can recall the above details are mostly correct. I just feel an urge to reread it although if it can't be found then it's fine, I just want to see if anyone knows it :)
