Review quote

"The gorgeous illustrations are enough to recommend this title, but the sweet message makes it a must-read; a great read-aloud." -- School Library Journal "Denos' text is fierce and crisp, her color-characters wondrous...spellbinding." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Praise for JUST BEING AUDREY: "Denos' soft pastel illustrations cut just the right Audrey outline (complete with flapping neck scarf), and fans will especially enjoy picking out the movie roles depicted in a two-page spread of costumes." -- Booklist Praise for JUST BEING AUDREY: "Audrey Hepburn proves as irresistible a character in the pages of a children's book as she is in those soigne roles of the silver screen." -- Publishers Weekly
