It matches the style of the original parchment cover books and has illustrations of Kirsten, Addy, and Josefina on the front, as all three characters were part of the rerelease. The inside of the pamphlet describes Kirsten, Addy, and Josefina's birthday stories and has an image of each character in their birthday outfits.
