"The coolest thing about Martha is that she was part of it all. She was there at Leon Schlesinger's studio and later at the MGM animation unit. She was friends with Chuck Jones, Bob Clampett, Tex Avery, Bill Hanna, Joe Barbera, Friz Freleng, Frank Tashlin, Michael Maltese, and on and on."
--Jerry Beck, from the foreword
"Living Life inside the Lines is a delightful chronicle of what it was like to work in the legendary Looney Tunes cartoon studio, written by a woman who was instrumental in the creation of some of the greatest cartoons ever made. With characteristic charm and humor, Martha Sigall has written a wonderfully entertaining memoir of an era in Hollywood when genius punched a time clock twice a day and created hilarity in between. Living Life inside the Lines is not only destined to become a mandatory, one-of-a-kind source for animation writers, scholars and fans, it is also the best book yet written about Hollywood's Golden Age of Cartoons."
--Michael Mallory, animation writer and author of Hanna-Barbera Cartoons
"Martha Sigall, the doyen of animation, introduces us, in a highly personal and spirited fashion, to the lives of the famous artists in the cartoon world. Most of us have worked with these geniuses but only in their mature years. It's a joyous and enlightening read."
--June Foray, voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel and Granny
"How lucky we are that Martha Sigall has given us this 'time trip' to the heyday of Hollywood animation. Her memories are precise--and priceless."
