Meet 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 made her late to set and in-and-out of movie contracts.
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.
