‘Living with a Legend’ is the non-fiction musings of Leslie E. Stern growing up in a multi-ethnic home amidst the genius of Iwao Takamoto, designer of Scooby-Doo and 85% of the Hanna-Barbera characters we all know and love.
It tells the story of her step-father’s emotion influence on her and never before told humorous anecdotes of her youth. It includes many personal drawings done by Iwao, as well as never before seen family photographs. Living with a Legend is filled with funny cartoons and holiday cards done by Iwao and by other animators for Iwao.
A must read for any cartoon lover and a pleasure to read for anyone with a heart.
