    “... as rich in artistic content as it is in historical narrative ...”

~ Yana Van der Meulen Rodgers,

  Rutgers University

     "A book interesting enough for young children and detailed enough for the serious collector. The new photos alone are worth the price."

~ Robert H. Gibbons, Past President,

International Rose O’Neill Club

and Bonniebrook Historical Society

      "At last, a new biography of Rose O’Neill!

      Children and grownups will love Rose O’Neill, the Girl Who Loved to Draw, which celebrates the life of the creator of the Kewpies—an artist who was as lovely as her art. Richly illustrated with examples of Rose O’Neill’s art that haven’t been seen for a century, and with lovely watercolors by the author, Linda Brewster, this book is a pleasure to page through just to look at the illustrations again and again. And on top of that, it’s a great read.

      Thank you, Linda Brewster and Boxing Day Books!"

~ Trina Robbins, Cartoon Historian,

Author of The Brinkley Girls: the Best of

Nell Brinkley’s Cartoons from 1913–1940 and

Told with love and grace, Rose O’Neill: The Girl Who Loved to Draw is the culmination of four decades of collecting and research into the life and legacy of the incomparable Rose O’Neill.
