The illustrations are made digitally. They are bold and heavy on color.
At first I was disturbed by this story as it talks about skinning, boiling and eating toads and the fox is excited about eating the legs of the smallest toads. He has a row of knives he is prepared to use in the cooking of the toads. But the story turns less violent when Mama toad comes on the scene. The violence troubled me especially because this book is advertized for ages 3-7. Perhaps skipping the more graphic words while reading this aloud for the littlest ones would make it work better.
Throughout the story, the young toads create quite a bit of mischief in the background which is fun to watch and gives you the feeling that Fox would never be able to hold on to those toads long enough to eat them.
At the end, the author includes a recipe for Toad-in-a-hole so you can make your own after reading the story. This is the American version of Toad-in-a-hole (egg inside of toast) not the British version that includes sausage.
