Song-like rhyming text invites readers to guess what different components add up to. For example, a secret's part whisper, part keeping mum, and a certain kind of fruit is part peach and part plum (a nectarine).

The collage art further expresses the concept that, from stones to sticks, the world is indeed a marvelous mix.
