A bright picture of DLS graces the front cover and dust jacket of this lively children's book. Its 48 heavy, stiff pages present BF (2-9); OF (10-17); BW (18-23); SW (24-29); TB (30-35); DLS (36-41); GA (42-28). In concept the book seems very close to a pair of Gakken volumes I have listed under 1994--right down to the page count per book. Like those two volumes, this book follows the stories with some black-and-white pages of games and exercises on paper of lighter weight. Up to 48, there is text on the right, with a small colored symbol, and a full-page colored illustration on the left; the last page breaks the mold by combining text and illustration. The cartoon illustration style is big and bold and full of color. The back cover has a striped design; the dust jacket uses the same design but adds a frog in the middle.
