Here’s something great for you. A very rare first edition of Eduard Uspensky’s book “Gena the Crocodile and His Friends” illustrated by V. Alfeyevsky (published in 1966). It’s the very first presentation of Cheburashka and he looks very different to how we know him now.

In the book Cheburashka was originally described as an “animal unknown to science”, with a body resembling that of a cub, puppy, rabbit or even “the Australian kangaroo”.
