From Roman Holiday to Breakfast at Tiffany's, when Audrey Hepburn starred in a movie, she lit up the screen. Her unique sense of fashion, her grace, and, most important, her spirit made her beloved by generations. But her life offscreen was even more luminous. As a little girl growing up in Nazi-occupied Europe, she learned early on that true kindness is the greatest measure of a person—and it was a lesson she embodied as she became one of the first actresses to use her celebrity to shine a light on the impoverished children of the world through her work with UNICEF.

This is Audrey Hepburn as a little girl, an actress, an icon, an inspiration; this is Audrey just being Audrey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and beautiful -- Just like Audrey This book is absolutely adorable! The illustration style is charming, simple and chic, and the story of Audrey's life is written in a way that many children of varying ages can appreciate. I bought this for myself and I love it! I was a little iffy but when it arrived it was just more than I had expected. Great for any Audrey fan of any age.

“Audrey Hepburn proves as irresistible a character in the pages of a children’s book as she is in those soigné roles of the silver screen.”
