As soon as Wanda learned to draw, she couldn't stop and dreamed of becoming an artist. But when her beloved father died, teenage Wanda put her family before her art, taking care of her ailing mother and six siblings. It wasn't until she knew that her family could support itself that she finally attained her dream, winning a scholarship to a famous art school in New York City and eventually creating one of the most beloved children's book s of all time, Millions of Cats.
