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.

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.

City Book Review

A timeline at the end of the book hints at more to the story—her impressive roster of awards, for example, as well as her multiple marriages—but perhaps it isn’t surprising that in a life like Hepburn’s, there is always more story to tell.
