Grace Drayton’s cartoon characters brought joy to many children and their families in the 20th century and now, almost a hundred years later, her drawings are still popular today. Grace and her sisters grew up in Philadelphia. She was a prolific and accomplished artist, belonging to the most prestigious artist circles. She was actively drawing from 1904 until her death in 1936. She is most famous for designing the Campbell’s Kids and Dolly Dingle, although she painted in oils and was a student of Robert Henri.
Dolly and her Kitty Kat are best of friends. They love playing together and all went well until Dolly realized that Kitty liked her dresses and was sad she didn’t have any of her own. So Dolly and Mother made her outfits to wear and Kitty thought the fairy had left them for her. But, while dressing up in her pretty clothes, Kitty realized she couldn’t run and climb trees like she wanted to. So finally, Kitty asked the fairy to take back the clothes because she wanted to be a real kitty like she was before. Kitty, therefore, teaches us that maybe we should be happy being who we are.
