National Book Festival

Julie Andrews, one of the most recognized figures in the world of entertainment, is perhaps best known for her performances in "Mary Poppins," "The Sound of Music," and "Victor/Victoria." She is also an author of children's books under the name Julie Andrews Edwards. Her first two books, "Mandy" and "The Last of the Really Great Wangdoodles," were published in the 1970s. These were followed by two series of books: the "Little Bo" series and the "Dumpy, the Dump Truck" series coauthored with her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton. Andrews has recently launched The Julie Andrews Collection, an imprint of HarperCollins, which encompasses books for young readers of all ages. Her most recent books are "Dumpy and the Firefighters" (HarperCollins, 2003) and "Simeon's Gift" (Julie Andrews Collection, 2003), both coauthored with her daughter.
