Selected by our Editorial Experts

A hilarious how-to guide to getting a job from the team behind How To Be a Baby, by Me, the Big Sister and How to Get Married, by Me, the Bride. With Sue Heap's wonderfully funny illustrations and Sally Lloyd-Jones' witty no-nonsense approach to job hunting, every toddler should be confidently drafting their CV by the end of the book.


How to Get a Job, by Me, the Boss by Sally Lloyd-Jones

A picture book for budding toddler 'job seekers' on getting a job! It provides information for young job seekers, such as typical interview questions - Do you know how to use scissors? and Can you dress yourself? - and advice on what not to bring to interview: Your whole family, Your gerbils.


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