|This picture book biography explores the early life of film star, theater performer, singer, and published author of children’s books Julie Andrews, and how she found her voice and her love of music.
“A beautiful and lyrical celebration of my mother’s legacy that hits all the right notes.” –Emma Walton Hamilton
Long before she starred in movies like The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, and The Princess Diaries, Julie Andrews was a little girl struggling with her parents’ divorce and the ravages of World War II. To comfort her and fill her time during the London Blitz, her stepfather taught her to sing, and Julie found her voice-one of the most extraordinary singing voices of all time.
Lyrically told by Julie Hedlund and lushly illustrated by Ilaria Urbinati, this is the story of how Julie Andrews became one of the world’s most beloved performers.
