ABOUT THIS BOOK

The know-it-all narrator from the New York Times Bestselling How to Be a Baby is back with the third book in the series. This time, she knows all about how to get a job, and she walks readers through the whole process: from deciding what you want to be all the way to acing the interview (tip: don't bring your pet gerbils). This book is sure to be a hit with kids who love to play pretend and dream about what they're going to be when they grow up.

QUOTES

Publishers Weekly, June 27, 2011:
"Heap's acrylic, paint, and crayon illustrations are as energetic and quirky as the Boss herself, whose charmingly askew perspective includes some genuine advice--and remains as funny as ever."

School Library Journal, August 2011:
"The illustrations are perfectly rendered in childlike acrylic paint and crayons and show the fun details of imaginative play on a rainy day. Fans of the previous titles will not be disappointed."

Zero to Eight (blog):
"The fun is in the details, and you're going to want to read this one carefully for full effect! The book is creative, imaginative, silly, and delightful...I'm happy to recommend."

MitchellRepublic.com:
"Packed with fun"

Home With The Boys (blog):
"I can’t remember the last time our family laughed so hard reading a book."

Spot to Read (blog):
"This is another great fun to read and see book in the authors' series of "How To" guides. A must for any want-a-be boss or lemonade stand owner. The pictures are bright and detailed and it is full of silliness making this book stand out as a favorite!"
