"Perhaps Andy the walrus is on the look-out for the man who borrowed his razor and forgot to bring it back." This one line sums up the spirit of this 1934 book perfectly: seductively eccentric, borderline completely bonkers.
From monkeys behind the wheel in old-school motorcars, to the film star dog, the boxing kangaroo or the turkey who doesn't believe in Christmas, this book is wonderfully weird and weirdly wonderful. And very much of its era.
