Young Libby Reid grew up in an All American town.

Libby Reid, ex-cheese hostess, radio announcer and glamorous fashion model turned cartoonist because she just can't stop noticing stuff. Do You Hate Your Hips More Than Nuclear War? and You Don't Have to Pet to Be Popular, two fine books of her cartoons were published by Viking/Peguin. Her cartoon essays, Dr. Trudy True, Cartoon Therapist and City Woman's Home Companion ran in the New York Daily News for many years. She lives in a 200 year old New Jersey house that she swears is not haunted.
