The lady had seen the power of the beauty inside her. And from then on, everywhere she went, loveliness happened. For she did have a very beautiful beauty indeed. -- The Lady Who Was Beautiful Inside. The perfect, any-occasion gift book for every woman in your life. With beauty magazines boasting circulations in the millions and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons recording more than 10 million elective cosmetic procedures within the last calendar year, it's pretty obvious that women across the nation are in need of a little pick-me-up. Edward Monkton delivers an empowering sense of self in The Lady Who Was Beautiful Inside by reminding readers that beauty from deep within is the most beautiful beauty of all. Monkton, perhaps better known as the U.K.'s top-selling living poet Giles Andreae, pairs a fresh, lyrical narrative style with simple yet elegant illustrations to create this modern-day fable.
