The pamphlet's front cover is teal with the title in teal and red print on a white scalloped square. A color photograph of the author overlaps the square. There is a large color photograph of a serving of frozen pineapple dessert. The back cover has a teal border on the right edge. A poem, SAFE! With Pet Milk, is printed with the title in red and the text in black on a yellow background with a color drawing of children playing baseball. The bottom half of the back cover highlights two television shows (Ted Mack and the Original Amateur Hour and Truth or Consequences with Ralph Edwards) and one radio show (Recipe of the Week on Story of the Week) sponsored by Pet Milk. These are on white and yellow panels on a turquoise background with red and black print and black-and-white photographs of Ted Mack, Ralph Edwards and Mary Lee Taylor. At the bottom is Pet Milk Co., 1418 Arcade Building, St. Louis 1, Mo. and a color photograph of a can of Pet Milk. The front end page has Four Wonderful Surprises -- Easy and thrifty, too! by the author: four tips for using Pet Milk in pudding. There is also an index.
