Wanda Gag: The Girl who Lived to Draw

Deborah Kogan Ray's Wanda Gag: The Girl who Lived to Draw is remarkable. (I suppose it helps to be a BIG fan of Millions of Cats -which I just happen to be!!) The book is just a beauty - the illustrations are magnificent - they truly add a nostaligic touch to the story. I just thoroughly enjoyed this story of Wanda Gag's life. She did not have an easy life, but she did work hard and overcame her circumstances. It was one of those books where you get so caught up in the story that you just want to keep reading to see how her life ends. Marvelous - simply marvelous!!

Did you know that Wanda is from New Ulm, Mn? When we had our women's retreat there a couple of years ago, her home was on the list of places to tour. I didn't get to go in, but instead had my picture taken in front of her house. Now I'll have to go back and do that. I absolutely love Millions of Cats!
