This image may be appropriate for those who still watch tv news (without knowing what really are the news).

I think these animations illustrate how you can create anything digitally today. Including perfectly animated faces.

I only just read the story today. I also like the style. You have a knack for building tension. Don´t bother about changing it to reconcile it with your current knowledge (a never-ending task)! It´ll probably show if you do and, as you say, the plot is the main thing. It could use a tiny bit of proof-reading, though.

This book is not new, or illustrated extremely well; but I remember it "armed" well my young brain against the mentality of some psychos.

It's just called "Rabbit and Skunk and the Scary Rock" (1976) by Carla Stevens, and you can find used copies here or there.

I wish I could show the entire thing here, but the gist is that Rabbit and Skunk are tortured and teased by a "scary rock". They argue with each other and become scared, only to find out at the end it's Woodchuck with a shit-eating crazy grin and making them scared for some personal reason he doesn't go into. The concept is simple, but it's a funny and charming way to introduce some concepts to kids. I highly recommend a copy to any members here with children or grandchildren.
