Look, it's Raining
A Walk in the Forest introduced the enormously talented Maria Dek, and When I Am Big, is a beguiling follow up to her first success. Charming illustrations and text encourage young children to explore what they can do as they grow up. The adventurous child imagines "I will tie my shoes all by myself, make 3 knots with big bows, eat 20 pizzas in one sitting, or walk animals, 8 at a time, while teaching them tricks." When I Am Big is also an unconventional counting book, as it goes all the way to 25. The result is a book that nourishes a child's curiosity, confidence, and delight in the world's wonders.
Based in Poland, Maria Dek holds an art degree from both the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and University of the Arts, London. She has written and illustrated three children's books, including A Walk in the Forest.
