Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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.

Horn Book Review

In this successor to two other How to... books, the narrator, a "Super-Ballerina-Soccer-Mermaid-Fairy Princess," introduces a wealth of professions. The joke--basically the narrator's serious articulation of silly ideas ("You shouldn't EVER bite the Boss when he is talking to you")--goes on a little long, but there are lots of funny moments. Heap's vignettes of kids demonstrating the jobs are entertaining. (c) Copyright 2011. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
