The illustrator: Fanny Young Cory (October 17, 1877 – July 28, 1972) was a cartoonist and book illustrator best known for her comic strips Sonnysayings and Little Miss Muffet. Cory was one of America's first female syndicated cartoonists.
She went by several pen names: F. Y. Cory, F. Cory Cooney and Fanny Cory Cooney but eventually used Fanny Y. Cory as her professional name. She sometimes used FYC as a signature on her early work. Cory illustrated numerous books including a 1902 edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. She illustrated L. Frank Baum's books The Master Key and The Enchanted Island of Yew. She illustrated Marion Hill's The Pettison Twins (McClure, Phillips & Co, 1906). Cory illustrated William L. Hill's Jackieboy in Rainbowland (Rand McNally & Company, 1911). Between 1913 and 1926, Cory decided to focus on raising her children, and she put her career on hold.
