A little boy contemplates all the interesting and exciting things he could be when he grows up. This exuberant book offers up everything from a paper plane folder to a puppy dog holder, from a baby sis soother to a snowball smoother.
Newbery-Award winning author Jerry Spinelli's simple and charming rhymes are accompanied by internationally-renowned illustrator Jimmy Liao's vibrant and fantastical illustrations. This book is an imaginative joyride about hopes and dreams, a joyous celebration of childhood, dreams, and all the things life has to offer.
* "[An] uplifting, imaginative vision of life's possibilities that suggests that there are no limits--not even the sky."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Both the lilting text and amusing watercolor and acrylic illustrations are full of energy....[A] marvelous story."
—School Library Journal
