"What do you want to be when you grow up?" At some point, every kid hears that age-old question—but they will delight in the answers in this wildly imaginative book written by the one and only Dr. Seuss! Originally published under his alternate pen name, Theo LeSieg, the rollicking Seussian rhyme comes to life with charming new art by Kelly Kennedy that features a multicultural cast in nontraditional gender roles. Showcasing a mix of real jobs (like firefighter and teacher) and Seussian ones (bass drum banger and roller coaster owner), this book will elicit smiles. It shows readers that while everyone needs to do something in life, there are many choices!
