More About This Title Just Like I Wanted


In this cheerful story, a young girl is determined to draw the perfect picture. But staying in the lines is hard to do! When she makes a mistake, she considers crumpling up the drawing and starting over -- but instead she decides to use the scribble to create something new. Soon her imagination takes her on a wild adventure as she fills her picture with wild horses, daring pilots, delicious candy, and flying pirate ships.

With energetic mixed-media collages that perfectly suit the story, this book will inspire readers to embrace their mistakes and unleash their creativity.


Elinoar Keller & Naama Peleg Segal have each written anumber of children's titles separately, and Just Like IWanted is their third book together. They both live in TelAviv. Visit Naama's website at www.webit.co.il/naama.
