A drawing with a pencil inscription title on the recto, "The General on a Toadstool", appears in Happychapter I of the book with the caption, "General Happychap is measured for a suit of clothes." It depicts a male Happychap wearing a suit coat and tricorn hat and standing upon a toadstool, while a male insect Skiddoodle measures his arm, and another male insect Skiddoodle takes notes and holds a t-square. A light preliminary pencil sketch on the verso appears to depict an unused depiction of Woodchopper Chip chopping the tree in which the Happychaps had slept.
A drawing that appears in Happychapter III of the book with the caption, "Sir Horace Hoptoad and Young Dandy Happychap," depicts a male toad Skiddoodle with his arm held by a male Happychap, and both dressed wearing tailcoats, tophats, and holding canes. A small male insect Skiddoddle stands in the foreground.
A drawing that appears in Happychapter III of the book with the caption, "They paused while the waiting-maids powdered their wings!", and an ink inscription on the verso, "Hair Dressing." It depicts a female insect Skiddoodle having flour applied to her wings by two female Happychaps, while a male insect Skiddoodle uses a haircurling iron to curl her antennae and holds a mirror and hairbrush and another female insect Skiddoodle brushes her dress with a clothes brush. A sign on the wall reads, "Hair Dressing, Antennae Curled, Shells Blackened, Wings Powdered."
A drawing that appears in Happychapter IV of the book as an illustrated text depicting the initial letter "T" with a male frog Skiddoodle, probably Hiram Hoppergrass leapfrogging over a male Happychap.
A drawing that appears in Happychapter VII of the book as an illustrated text depicting the initial letter "H" represented by three lighted firecrackers, with a male frog Skiddoodle, Hiram Hoppergrass holding a lighted firecracker while an exploding firecracker propels him and a male insect Skiddoodle.
An image with a pencil inscription title on the recto, "Tête-à-tête", appears in Happychapter VII of the book with the caption, "A pleasant conversation." It depicts a Happychap man wearing a suit coat and top hat sitting upon a toadstool holding a flintlock rifle upon which a dragon fly has alit with a powder horn on its tail; he talks with a Happychap woman wearing a dress and bonnet and holding a fan, while a young male insect Skidoodle lights a firecracker below the toadstool.
