Little People, Big Dreams: Mindy Kaling - Isabel Sanchez Vegara
This little biography of Mindy Kaling tells the inspiring tale of the actor, writer, producer and director.
When Mindy was a little girl, she loved TV comedy sketches; in particular, Saturday Night Live. At college, she studied theatre and met a friend with whom she created her first off-Broadway production. It was there she was spotted by the writer and producer of The Office (US) for the role of Kelly Kapoor. Mindy went on to write and executive produce hilarious episodes of the hit TV show, then created The Mindy Project, and Never Have I Ever (watched by 40 million people), fulfilling her childhood dream of becoming a director and writer.
The Little People, Big Dreams books series portrays the inspiring lives of artists, designers, activists and scientists in a super-accessible way with sweet illustrations and by focusing on when they started out as children with a dream. Each book has a biographical timeline with historical photographs and extra facts, too.
