Review ?Everybody?s favorite liberated cartoon woman.? -Elle "Packed with amazing inspo and fab life advice." -Girl's Life magazine ?Betty Boop embodies the universal themes of Love, Courage, Independence, and Hope-the same themes that keep coming up in my own work as a musician and composer. It?s these themes that have inspired us to bring Betty to Broadway. Betty within the pages of this book or on Broadway-it?s all positive and empowering. I think the whole world could use a little Betty Boop right now.? -David Foster, renowned musician and composer "The original female star of animation is back in Susan Wilking Horan and Kristi Ling Spencer?s new book . . .
