I WANT TO BE A MOVIE STAR
“So you want to be a Movie Star?
What kind will you be? Pirate Captain? Noble Queen? Superhero? Maybe a Comedian or a star on Broadway? Anything is possible with a little fun and a whole lot of creativity. Join Evie (and Oscar) as they imagine their way through the magic of movies, theatre and play time.”
This book explores the many genres of theatre and acting, it challenges the mainstream idea of fame and teaches little ones that their dreams may come in many different forms if they are open to exploring.

BEHIND THE SCENES
By Mary Anastasiou, Author
MY DREAM CREATIVE TEAM!
Anil created the most beautiful illustrations for my very first self published book ‘I want to be a Rock Star’.
When this title was signed to Larrikin House, I insisted she continue on as my preferred illustrator.
Anil’s illustrations for ‘I want to be a Movie Star’ far exceeded my expectations. I wanted a character that was cute, sassy and just a little bit edgy. Anil delivered this and so much more! I love little Evie and her side kick Oscar.
We’re now working on the third title in the ‘I want to be…’ series and I can’t wait to see where Anil takes these two new characters.
Anil and Ozan, I will be forever grateful to you both for helping me realise my dream of creating beautiful and inspiring children’s books.
