How To Get A Job: OUT TODAY!

Do you know what you want to be when you grow up? Know any graduates? Are you in the job market? Do you know any children who love playing pretend?

Good news. Here's the book for you.


She's at it again. This time our know-it-all narrator knows everything about how to ace the interview and land the perfect job.

BBC Radio 4 said her first book was "One of the funniest books of the year." The New York Times said it was, "adorable, original, well-illustrated and fabulous" and "ultra charming." Publisher's Weekly said her next was "Stylish and witty." What might they say about this one?

Do YOUR bit for the economy and anyone in the job market...
  • order your copy at your local bookstore or here (USA) or here (UK)!!
  • leave a glowing review!
  • talk about it non stop all the time!
(or just read it out loud and enjoy it in a public place as you laugh loudly slapping your thigh)

which you can read here

(which is surely the least you can do)
