18 pp. 22x15 cm. Original illustrated wrappers and illustrations by A.N. Viktorova. Restoration of the spine. The first and only edition. A coloring book.

GIZMESTPROM is translated as ‘The state publishing house for light industry’. It was mostly printing technical literature, manuals and instructions. Presumably it only published a handful of children’s books. The theme of the book is that the animals are getting to the well-known All-Union Agricultural Exhibition which opened in 1939 to show the unusually big vegetables they grew.
