“Not sure this is biblical enough”

Was wanting to use this as to engage with pre-teens of Muslim background. Two things trouble me:
1. The first salvation promise of God through Jesus Christ (he will send a child born of woman to crush Satan) to Adam & Eve in Genesis 3:15 is entirely missing. All that is said is "As for the serpent God put him under a curse. He must crawl on his belly in the dirt. He would bite at the heels of humanity. He would be hated, hunted down and killed" (with a drawing of a live snake).
2. There are a number of drawings of Old Testament women wearing strapless tunics (ie fully bare shoulders, decollete and upper arms) - in public. This is historically inaccurate, and an unnecessary distraction for readers from a Muslim background. It suggests that the women (eg Sarah, Rebekah) were immoral.
Will not use this book, will use instead The Action Bible New Testament, and The Big Picture Story Bible (which explains Genesis 3:15 as "God promised that one day someone would come and crush Satan's power over people" (with a drawing of Jesus, arms outstretched as if on the Cross, standing over a dead snake).
