The back of the pamphlet is plain. The title page includes five orange and white drawings of five caricatures, each tied to one of the stories that follow. Stories are titled: Clara the Cow and the Pale Little Boy; How Grandfather Collie Ended the Fighting; Mrs. Graycat Stops Worrying; How the Grandfather's Clock Lost His Troubles; Periwinkle and His Prank; The Story of Jack Frost and the North Wind; A Surprise for Jack-in-the-Pulpit.
