Audrey Hepburn remains a beloved figure worldwide, but before she became a world-famous actress and humanitarian, she was a little girl with big dreams. Her extraordinary story unfolds during her childhood in Holland, where her happy life of ice-skating and dancing changes with the harsh realities of World War II. Written by her son and daughter-in-law, this title offers a beacon of hope during difficult times, showing young readers that, with spirit and determination, dreams can come true.In her fantasies, Audrey enrolls in a premier ballet school and turns to acting, singing, and dancing. One day she is cast in a film that makes her a star. She eventually sets fame aside to focus on raising a family and working with children in need, which she felt was her most important accomplishment.
