This was one of the first non-picture books I read as a kid. I had also not heard the phrase "draw your own conclusions" before. So when Harold mentions in the epilogue that readers are "left to draw their own conclusions", I assumed it was some sort of pun inviting us to illustrate the ending (especially given Harold's noted predilection for puns). I still laugh at how I was young enough not to realize that most books didn't come filled with pictures from cover to cover, but old enough to (falsely) appreciate the wordplay.
