'Mandy' (1971)

Julie Andrews, left, poses with her 14-year-old stepdaughter, Jennifer Edwards, after writing her first children's book, "Mandy." Andrews wrote the book, a story of an orphan girl, after Jennifer challenged her stepmother to stop swearing at home. Andrews lost the bet but kept her end of the bargain and wrote the book for Jennifer. She wrote several more children's books in later years.
