At the young age of just 15, Wanda Gag received her dying father's last wish that she take up his dream of becoming a successful artist: "What papa couldn't do, Wanda would have to finish." Wanda assumed the role of head of the household and became the sole means of support for her sick mother and six siblings. Although times were tough, Wanda persevered and eventually became a celebrated artist and author living in New York City.
Karen Nelson Hoyle tells the story of Wanda Gag's eccentric life as a children's book author and traces the significant contributions she made to the genre. Drawn from extensive research of the artist's personal and professional papers and correspondence with friends and contemporaries, Hoyle presents a rich portrait of a gifted artist.
