This book has told the story of Hello Kitty from 1974 when Hello Kitty was first designed by Sanrio (3-River) and her first appearance on a coin purse. It told her story from when her family was introduced, she became the children’s ambassador for UNICEF, her movie, Hello Kitty theme parks, TV shows, Hello Kitty being introduced to the fashion industry, her Macy’s balloon, Helly Kitty Con, special edition Barbie, and much, much more. But most importantly, why so many people love her? Hello Kitty is drawn so simple, but when you’re sad, she appears to be sad, too. She always looks the way you are feeling. “Small gift, big smile.”
