Drawing of a nervous kangaroo. Assuming kangaroos display nervousness like we humans do, this fellow seems worried about something. Hopefully, he’s only hopeful that someone will find him charming and use him in their project.
Cottontail and the Wishing-Fairy, published in 1921 included this and a number of other charming vintage drawings by Dugald Stewart Walker (1883-1937).
