The Book That Changed My Life
Bobbi Brown Founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics
What is the name of the book?
At the time, it didn’t have a name, as they were stories that my father created and wouldtell my siblings and me. Now the stories have been published by Scholastic into a booktitled “The Flights of Marceau: Race to the Rescue.”
How old were you when you read it?
I was about 4 or 5 years old when my dad began telling me stories about Marceau.
What character did you most identify with?
The main character is a man named Marceau, and I didn’t identify with him, per se, but Icame to love him because he always took the children on great adventures and taughtthem valuable lessons.
What was your favorite part?
That the good guys always won and the bad guys always lost.
Did you read it more than once?
My dad had so many stories featuring Marceau, and we read most of them more thanonce.
Why/How did it affect you?
Because I started listening to these stories when I was younger, I learned from my father how important it was to use your imagination and therefore developed a sense of creativity at a young age.
