A decent overview of Gag's life and the important part of her story. Also, the first official verification that this author did indeed board with my family (the Roigers) while teaching near Springfield. More research is needed to find out exactly who that was!

I enjoyed learning about the life of one of my favorite artists and illustrators. Good book especially for any girl interested in being an artist.

I loved this. (Super cute hairdo on the cover, too!). Wonderful story of the writer/illustrator of one of my favorite children's books ever, Millions of Cats. It led me to some of the other picture books, wish I had known those earlier! Always nice to know that the great skills of a young girl also got her through her adult life; complete with true love and a farm house full of family (sibs) and gallery showings in New York. I'm thankful for this snapshot, will continue to read more about her.
