Synopsis

Just Like I Wanted by Naama Peleg Segal, Elinoar Keller

In this cheerful story, a young girl is determined to draw the perfect picture. But staying in the lines is hard to do!

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.
