What a dapper looking fellow this rat with a feather in his hat appears to be. Standing upright and carrying his tail, he looks contemplative as he walks along a garden path. This anthropomorphic rat drawing is one of several fun images of animals with human traits from this book.
Johnny Crow’s Garden contained so many charming drawings. They were published in 1903 and were drawn by the artist Leonard Leslie Brooke (1862-1940).
