How to get a job, by Me, the Boss

A hilarious “guide” to getting a job

by Sally Lloyd-Jones, illustrated by Sue Heap

Our know-it-all narrator from the New York Times bestselling ‘How To Be A Baby’ is back with the third book in the series: How to Get A Job.

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 gerbils.)

How To Get A Job: By Me, The Boss 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.

The charmingly askew perspective includes some genuine advice–and remains as funny as ever.” – Publisher’s Weekly
