Description


From the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy best-selling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of Kylie Minogue, the Australian princess of pop!

Little Kylie grew up with her parents and her younger sister, Dannii, in Melbourne, Australia. She loved singing, dancing and spinning around in her room, but she felt shy in front of other people. Her confidence and courage grew as she watched her sister perform, so she auditioned for a role in a TV show… and she got it!

From there, she moved on to a role in Australian soap Neighbours. Kylie quickly became one of the series’ most-loved characters and known to audiences all over the world. But Kylie never forgot her childhood love for music, and when she got the chance to record her own songs, she went for it.

Today, she is one of the most-loved artists ever; a pop chameleon who has dazzled her fans for decades. Her songs have been mega hits in countries across the world. And her songs, new and old, continue to wow people and get them dancing.

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 iconic pop princess’ life.
