I write the weekly childrens book column for The South Wales Evening Post. I review childrens books from picture books, middle grade fiction, non fiction and young adult books. I am officially a bookworm.
Happy Birthday to Brigitte Bardot! This picture is of her with Picasso, during a visit to his studio at Vallauris, near Cannes, during the film festival in 1956. He actually refused to paint her!!
Most romantic story is about her romance with playboy Gunter Sachs. Hours after they met, he arranged for a helicopter to douse Bardot's house in red petals: "It's not every day a man drops a ton of roses in your garden," she wrote, and married him precipitately in Las Vegas.
