Catalog Record | Enlarge Image | Adopt-a-Book Home

This book was the result of collaboration between McLoughlin Brothers and the comics/cartoon publisher King Features Syndicate (established by William Randolph Hearst in 1914). Little Annie Rooney was based on a popular silent movie about a tough Irish girl who was both created and acted by America’s sweetheart, Mary Pickford. The book is evidence that McLoughlin Brothers attempted to keep up with current popular trends.
