About the book:

Here is the real story behind the woman who inspired a bestselling biography, one of the top Broadway musicals of all time, and two classic films__and it's one that will surprise you. The epic love story between a British governess and the King of Siam once again comes to life with the release fo Twentieth Century Fox's Anna and the King, starring Academy Award-winning actress Jodie Foster and international superstar Chow Yun-Fat. The Story of Anna and the King captures all the nuances of this extraordinary relationship, as well as the extravagant film depicting it, in lush, full-color photographs. Cecelia Holland weaves a beautiful narrative of the true histories behind Anna Leonowens and the Siamese royal family, as well as the political and cultural rises and falls of Siam__present-day Thailand__based on historical information and the published works of Anna Leonowens. Filmed entirely in Malaysia, Anna and the King features one of the largest motion pictures sets ever constructed__the King's Palace, which covers more than eight acres of land. Under the direction of Andy Tennant, an international cast and crew representing more than twenty countries works with a Myriad of stunningly ornate costumes, thousands of extras, and a menagerie of specially trained animals, The Story of Anna and the King invites you to enter King Mongkut's world.
