Julie Andrews' memoir of her early years is an amazing story of determination and a growing love of art. Ms. Andrews has a wonderful writing style--simple and clear--and her voice comes through quite clearly. While many memoirs gloss over the trials of life to focus on the triumphs, Ms Andrews pays attention to both the hardships of her World War 2 and Post World War 2 life as well as the joys and the triumphs. She also reveals the troubled nature of her home life. In other words, she doesn't spare her family,, but she also doesn't judge them. I hope that the memoir of her life during and after the making of Mary Poppins is soon published.

Sonya This looks good, Rosa. Did you ever read her children's book, The Last of the Really Great Wangdoodles? I had a fifth grade teacher who read it aloud to us and it captured my imagination. I read it to my own kids and they liked it too. She has a flair for storytelling, and I can see some of the book's roots in the Narnia series, especially The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

Rosary No, on the children's book. I hope to finish this soon :-)
