The front panel is red and white checkered. Dora's Diary is in a red rectangle above a white rectangle. It has a picture by Lois Fisher of a girl seated on her bed with her dog sleeping on the rug next to it. There is a dresser with a lamp on it and a mirror above it. There is a window with curtains and the moon with a face is visible. The back panel is red and white checkered and has a red circle in the center with the dog scratching his ear. There is a conversation balloon that says: "its a dog's life living in a kitchen that is not equipped with a Monarch range." This cartoon and all of the ones in the leaflet are done by Lois Fisher. Page 4 has the company logo in the center. The pages are a mix of cartoons and recipes. All the pages with cartoons and the back end page have a red and white checkered border.
