11 inches x 8-1/2 inches, pencil on paper, with small touch-ups in white ink, hinged with masking tape to a piece of board. Published on page 5 of the book, where Sam, the boy, is drawing a pencil sketch in his diary. White's handwritten note at the bottom: "To go with Sam Beaver's diary entry. Chapt. I." The drawing is also annotated by Ed Frascino, the book's illustrator, and is accompanied by a letter presenting it from Frascino.
