The I Wish series I Wish I Was Tall Like Willie, I Wish I Was Strong Like Manuel, (I Wish I Had Glasses Like Rosa, I Wish I Had Freckles Like Abby) explores the issues of self–esteem, self–acceptance and friendship for children. Kids are reminded to like themselves “just the way they are!” through humorous situations and outlandish schemes.

How far will Manuel go to be just like Willie? On the other hand, how far will Willie go to be just like Manuel? Best Friends, Manuel and Willie want to be just like each other.

This title is available in English–only or bilingual English–Spanish editions.

During a casual conversation about New Year's resolutions, Kathryn Heling and Deborah Hembrook discovered they shared a common dream—writing for children. Kathryn is an elementary school psychologist and when she's not writing, she can be found cooking, sewing, or golfing. Deborah is a kindergarten teacher, a volunteer at the Humane Society, and an avid Harley motorcyclist.

Bonnie Adamson began illustrating children's books after a career as a freelance publications designer and editor. She works from her studio at home in South Carolina and continues to be inspired by her two grown–up daughters.
