Although Bonsall studied at New York University School of Architecture and the American School of Design, she is most known for her children's books.

Her career as a children's author started as a doodle on her drawing board. Later, a doll manufacturer purchased the rights to her orange-haired, freckle-faced rag doll who later became a character in her first book, The Surprise Party.
