The new memoir picks up where the first left off: just as Andrews was preparing to film Mary Poppins, a performance that would win her an Academy Award and propel her into being a film star and household name. Home Work will chronicle Andrews' long screen career, which included such films as The Sound of Music, Victor/Victoria, and, more recently, The Princess Diaries.

Andrews co-wrote Home Work with her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton.

The mother-and-daughter team have previously penned more than 30 books for children, including The Very Fairy Princess and Dumpy series, The Great American Mousicle, and Little Bo.
