In this book from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy best-selling 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.'
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.
