Rose O'Neill (1874-1944) inventor of the comic strip, creator of Kewpie comics, and Kewpie Doll. Although Kewpie is a globally known name, few know the woman behind the artwork. This oversize richly illustrated book with examples of Rose O'Neill's work is a great read for both children and adults. From the prairies of Nebraska to the streets of New York City O'Neill worked for early childhood education by creating reading materials for the young. She became one of the first female millionaires from her own hard work and philanthropy. Her story is full of love, drama, and humor. Her comics lead to Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse, Little Nemo, Mango, Anime and thousands more. Having been overlooked ay comic and art historians here is a book that will open the door to what a young woman did despite the odds against her. "A book interesting enough for young children and detailed enough for the serious collectors. The new photos alone are worth the price" -Robert H. Gibbons, Past President, International Rose O'Neill Club and Bonniebrook Historical Society
