Gerturde, the kangaroo trademark, decorates endpapers. Just a sample: Around the turn of the century, an obscure inventor built a new racing car called "999". He hired little-known pro bicycle rider Barney Oldfield to drive it for him in a race. He won at an unheard of speed, a mile a minute. Publicity followed, launching careers for them both.
