RUBY ROSELANI ROTH was silent as the moon when she was born at home in the summer of ‘82 in Los Angeles. She began drawing the moment she was handed a pencil, wore a back brace for 13 years, kick boxed on local TV at age 19, and some time later defended her art, live on FOX News. Glamour called her work, “an explosion of controversy.” Jane Goodall wrote of it, “powerful and important,” and fans sing praises of a “female Frazetta.” Featured on Today, CNN, and other major media outlets, Ruby Roth is an artist, designer, and via the renowned branch of her creative house, the world’s leading author-illustrator of a series of books for kids, the first of their kind in children's literature. Her newest title, Bad Day, is a feelings book—but surely the most honest, heartening, relatable one you’ve ever darn seen.
