Ride ’em cowboy! This little rascal is using his dad’s slippered foot for a horse, while his father perfects that perfectly cool, pipe-smoking 50s demeanor. Gotta love the story title they chose to feature under his chair.

The cover illustration was drawn by J. Frederick Smith, known for his steamy illustrations and photographs. (read his obituary)
