Children are always asked, "What will you do when you grow up?" It's really a silly question to ask, for most children are spending time just learning to be what they are ... children. They're learning the world and the things that are in it. They listen and observe. And, while they may seem young, they often see with a clearer eye than some adults. Susie Morgenstern's child answers the question of "what will you be when you grow up?" in a manner that is very different.

From official release/information:

Book Description: With paintings reminiscent of Maurice Sendak, and a lyrical text that is concrete enough for elementary kids to grasp, Susie Morgenstern and Jiang Hong Chen tackle the question: What will you do when you grow up? Their little boy wants to make miracles: He would cure the sick, feed the hungry, jail the bad guys, and fill the world up with people who care and share. The story ends with a twist, bringing a very ambitious group of wishes back down to earth.
