If you’ve ever dreamed of being a writer, award-winning author, Patricia MacLachlan’s Someone Like Me is a book that will touch your heart. This charming, lyrical tale is about a little girl who listens to stories told over and over, reads book after book, observes how people talk and laugh, dreams of a white horse, and carries memories of her great-grandmother’s love of the prairie earth and nature. This semi-autobiographical story gives the reader a peek into Patricia MacLachlan’s childhood and how the simple things in life made a lasting impression on her. Chris Sheban’s beautiful illustrations are rendered in soft watercolors, colored pencils, and graphite. The text and illustrations evoke memories of a young girl’s life journey that influenced her life as a writer.
