New Zealand is shown as a small boy in sailor costume riding on the tail of a kangaroo bounding across the Tasman sea from New Zealand to Australia. Exhibition and book captions read - New Zealand supporters of federation [with Australia] stressed the shared British stock, language, Queen, God and trade possibilities. New Zealand would progress by 'leaps and bounds' with an assured market for cereals, fruit and some manufactured goods. South Seas isolation was another reason for embracing federation. There was uneasiness about growing German power and French intentions in the Pacific. There was also fear, however, irrational, of the 'yellow peril'.
