"Y is the Yarn that is held by our Bob, While Grandma unwinds it, a delicate job." The illustration depicts a little boy sitting on the "Y" and holding a skein of yarn while an old woman sits across from him in a chair and pulls the yarn to wind it into a ball.
"Z is for Zebra with stripes on his back, How fine he would look were he hitched to a hack." The illustration depicts a zebra hitched to a carriage that is being driven by a black man wearing only white shorts, white socks, and a top hat.
Denslow was well known for including a seahorse as part of his signature as can be seen under the wheels of the carriage.
