His book, Go To Your Room!: More Family Circus Fun!, a collection of cartoons from The Family Circus, picturing Billy on the cover, Fawcett Gold Medal Books: 1982. One of more than 14 million paperback compilations of The Family Circus cartoons in print. Cartoonist Bil Keane (1922-2011) debuted his first "Family Circus" cartoon, based on Keane's own family, in February 1960. The strip, which was originally called "The Family Circle", still uses circles around the characters to denote their closeness. The comic strip is distributed to over 1500 newspapers by The King Features Syndicate, making it the most widely syndicated panel in the U.S., and the "Family Circus" characters have appeared in TV holiday specials and in paperback book compilations (some 14 million in print). Keane, who was named Cartoonist of the Year in 1983, has passed his legacy along to his family. His son Glen, a leading animator at Disney, created the starring characters Ariel (The Little Mermaid), the Beast (Beauty and the Beast), Pocahontas and Tarzan. Fine condition.
