What did I like about the books

  • Fun story
  • Bright and quirky illustrations
  • Imaginative ideas that show kids that they can be whatever they wish and have fun trying
  • The books come in hardcover so it is good for heavy-duty wear.

Alexander’s big sisters read him both books and he was very happy. He loves books and new stories, and ones that have action-packed ideas are even better!

About Mary Anastasiou

Mary Anastasiou is the author behind the ‘I want to be ..’ series of picture books.

Anil Tortop is the gifted illustrator that has created stunning images for both books.

Mary’s first self-published book was “I want to be a Rock Star” and this was in 2016. She wrote it for her first child who was born in 2008 (my twins are the same age as Mary’s son Luke) and wanted stories that would make him giggle and be entertaining.

“Mary’s first book ‘I want to be a Rock Star’ was picked up by indie publishing company Larrikin House and republished in 2019.”

 

1 Reader can WIN signed copies of both books!

    Both books would invite exploration. ‘What if’ questions would spark the imagination. Fun reading!!

    My kids are at the age where they say ‘When I grow up I want to be a streamer’. And while I internally sigh, I outwardly support them in their hopes and dreams. A little bit of dreaming never hurt anyone and these books would get them firing!

    The most amazing gift would be these fun and beautiful books
    Each page turning moment will enlighten joyful & fascinating looks
    The little ones can imagine what might be
    Amidst storylines that will let them see
    Everyone is unique and one of a kind
    Always reach for the stars, don’t leave a dream behind
    With a rock star and movie star, there will be smiles all around
    As illustrative creativity and literary inspiration- wondrously surround.

    My daughter has been doing acting classes as she wants to be an actress. She would also enjoy reading these books to her little sister.
