Although Crosby Newell Bonsall studied at New York University School of Architecture and the American School of Design, she is most known for her children's books. Some were published under the name Crosby Newell.

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.

Bonsall died in 1995.
