Young readers' grandmothers will be more familiar with Audrey Hepburn than they are, but perhaps some will want to learn more after reading this picture book biography. While the format does not allow for the details of her life, readers will learn enough about Audrey's childhood to put it into historical context and details about her work for UNICEF will bring her impact into the present. The illustrations catch the entertainer's beauty and spirit, both of which lasted beyond her youth.

A timeline fills in some details omitted in the text and an ample bibliography is supplied for those who want more.
