Marilyn Monroe : Volume 67 Hardback

Illustrated by Ana Albero

Part of the Little People, BIG DREAMS series

Hardback

Description

In this book from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the true story of Marilyn Monroe, the iconic movie star. Little Norma Jeane grew up between foster homes, an orphanage, and a family friend's house - where she was forbidden from watching movies.

Through her difficult childhood and teen years, she dreamed of becoming an actress.

One day a photographer spotted her and gave her a modelling contract, and from this day she was 'Marilyn Monroe'. She was much-admired but suffered from pre-performance anxiety, which was a challenge for her in her career.

Her films grossed over $200 million but she was known to have said: 'I don't want to make money.

I just want to be wonderful.' She dazzled a generation with her inspired performances and unique style and glamour, and her legacy will live forever as one of the most iconic film actors of all time. This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the star's life. Little People, BIG DREAMS is a bestselling series of books and educational games that explore the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists and activists.

All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream. This empowering series offers inspiring messages to children of all ages, in a range of formats.

The board books are told in simple sentences, perfect for reading aloud to babies and toddlers.

The hardback versions present expanded stories for beginning readers.

Boxed gift sets allow you to collect a selection of the books by theme.

Paper dolls, learning cards, matching games and other fun learning tools provide even more ways to make the lives of these role models accessible to children. Inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world with Little People, BIG DREAMS!
