OH LORD!

A spoofy version of the Creation--not really offensive, not really clever, not really much of anything unless you know the Biblical story . . . and, in appearance, very young. In small, cartoon-frame drawings, the Lord God awakens, grumbling; dreams up Heaven and Earth on his drawing board; draws everything--night and day, clouds, land, and plants--to match; and then proceeds to sculpt the animals--which his attending angels paint. The big problem comes with ""something special,"" ""something like me!""--which turns out, ha-ha, to look like a gorilla. A second try, modeled after the angels, produces Adam--who doesn't want the gorilla for a mate; hence Eve. And, overleaf, the Garden of Eden. And, on the seventh day, the Lord resting in a deck chair with a box of candy and a tall drink. If this appeals, so be it: the multicolor pictures are perky.
