Some elements of this text to consider:

  • The somewhat unusual structure of this cartoon – two panels on the top row and one on the bottom.
  • The simplistic and somewhat unrealistic style of the art which adds to the humor.
  • The cartoon assumes the reader knows the story of the stork and the baby.
  • How does the art work work with the language to create humor?
  • What effect do the boy’s and father’s facial features have on the audience?
