Thanks to Mary Anastasiou for sending my family her wonderful books.
We were sent “I want to be a Rock Star” and “I want to be a Movie Star”
Read on to find out how you can win both books, and as a special treat, both books have been signed by the author!
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!

My kids are definitely rock stars in the making, they’re always dancing about and singing off-key.

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!

My kiddies have wild imaginations and I think these books would actually inspire their inner celebrities to come out!

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.
