Honey-voiced thespian Nanette Newman (probably still bestknown for advertising washing up liquid) has written many books for children and this – her latest – is typically gentle, warm and imaginative. Beautifully capturing the special bond between a grandparent and grandchild (and illustrated with quirky charm by Emma Chichester Clark), it cleverly and creatively turns the question, ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’ on its head – and is a great starting point for all kinds of discussions: when is someone actually ‘grown up’? Can we really be whatever we want to be? Why do people have jobs? How many careers can we think of that could make the world a better place? And what would be the perfect flavour for Brussels sprouts?
