Her sky starts to turn grey, however, when she meets Valerie — a new schoolmate who is as pretty and popular as a movie star! Azure loses interest in the things she loves doing as her desire to be as popular as Valerie grows. She decides to follow Valerie’s “Beauty Checklist”, but soon discovers something even more important than being “pretty”…

Follow Azure on her journey of self-discovery, and share in her joy and tears as she brings the blue skies back into her life. Think about your own journey along the way and how you can stand tall again: Just like Azure!

Recommendation
“Go ahead, embrace yourself. Really, it is okay! Libby Lam’s ingenious book, “Checklisted Beauty”, reminds us there is no time like the present to embrace ourselves for “being me”. “Checklisted Beauty” makes you look beyond the obvious and find true beauty lies within.”
Karena Lam 林嘉欣
“Healthy self-esteem is one major key to the happiness and success of children and teenagers. It is therefore crucial for young boys and girls to learn how to appreciate themselves and develop a positive self image.

Libby’s book provides a wonderful entry point for young girls to ponder the (ir)relevance of societal beauty standards imposed on them and the important message of ‘true beauty lies within’.”
Prof. Darius Chan, 香港中文大學心理學系教授
Author

Libby Lam

Libby Lam, aka “Lady Libby”, is a best-selling children’s book author and illustrator who grew up in Hong Kong. Having led a corporate career for more than 10 years, Libby turned away from her past in search of a different life purpose – to inspire confidence and courage in children by creating her own children’s books. Known for the unusual story plots and vibrant images, Libby has learnt her trade at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Hong Kong since 2011. Her three published books, “Checklisted Beauty”, “My Best Friend Sunny” and the latest one “Crispy Children” were her course assignments and were later named best sellers in Hong Kong.

“Ten-Star Service” is Libby’s fourth publication. She considers it her great honour to dedicate this book to Make-A-Wish Hong Kong – a wish-granting Charity that has been a primary motivator for Libby to give back to society and help children.Inspired by her background in psychology and her prior corporate career, Libby’s stories explores how individuals are challenged by society at different fronts and how they could rise to their own strength. The pain and euphoria of motherhood she experiences also bring a vivid and intimate touch on her characters, making them more relatable to the young readers. It has been a difficult journey for Libby in charting a new career in the creative industry, but the new meanings her books bring to the charitable causes have made her efforts worthwhile.
