In this new series, discover the lives of outstanding people from designers and artists to scientists. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream. The first book follows Coco Chanel, from her early life in an orphange--where she is a genius with needle and thread--to her time as a cabaret singer, hat maker, and, eventually, international fashion designer. This inspiring and informative little biography comes with extra facts about Coco's life at the back.

Leuk boek je met mooie illustraties. Niet teveel tekst dus eenvoudig te lezen. Jammer dat hij niet in het Nederlands verkrijgbaar is. Ik lees hem daarom voor aan mijn kindje en vertaal hem dan zelf naar het Nederlands.
