Hit & miss (meh to great) collection by assorted artists with no female examples.
You want to search elsewhere for more serious in-depth biography.
Not for kids because one homage to Hugh Hefner. Enough said.
However, the style so diverse & useful sampler on some cartoonists who were/weren't in the comic industry for the general public.

Innovative cartoonists illustrate brief cartoon biographies of their favorite innovative cartoonists. What could be better? Fun, often surprising, sometimes moving.
