Description: Hilarious story about Adam's first day in the Garden of Eden – featuring a trip to the world's first car showroom, where God helps him choose from a selection of vehicles, including an estate (elephant) and a tractor (goat)!
Illustrated throughout with superb full-page b&w line-drawings, captioned with handwritten text.
For a paperback of such a considerable vintage, it is nothing short of incredible that it has been so well preserved. Apart from some light rubbing near the head of the spine, the book is in perfect condition. The tightly bound pages are very bright, crisp, and completely unmarked.
