My personal, subjective, totally unqualified opinion - I hate the illustrations completely, throughout the excerpt and without exception. In addition, I doubt that the style of the drawings would appeal to the target audience of the book.

As for the narative, I think the stylistic device of the direct address to the reader is engaging and should be effective; the text is informative, clear and simple. However, regardless of the fascinating facts described... isn't it a bit boring? (A fan of other Richard's books, btw).
