'What do you wanna be when you grow up?'
The most important thing children are asked about from really small til they reach adults!
This is another amazing children's story from Julia Dweck, with many colorful and amazing illustrations to go along with the story!! This is a great story for children and parents to read, enjoy and treasure!! I love the ending the most, it's my utmost favorite party of the story and is a great learning tool for teachers to use as well in schools, because of the great lesson their is in the story.

*I received an e-ARC copy of this book in return for an honest review.*





Julia Dweck The idea for Faux Paw came from growing up with parents who told my three sisters and me that we could become whatever we wanted to be when we grew up. My older sister took this very literally, announcing to her Kindergarten teacher that she’d like to become a bird. Her teacher explained why she couldn’t,but my sister was not discouraged, because my parents had instilled her with great confidence. My sister is now a computer graphics professor with her Ph.D. Although she’s not a bird; her imagination takes flight each day! Visit me at


Walter Carzon I have always been a dreamer and enjoyed making up stories and illus trating them. When I was a little boy, I read bedtime stories with enchanting illustrations that made my imagination soar. Closing my eyes, I could see a universe of characters, living inside amazing worlds. I knew that I wanted to draw them one day, and that’s how I began. At first, my drawings were gifts for my family and friends, but eventually they reached a wider audience of children. I loved illustrating Faux Paw, because it is a beautiful story with a great message. I wish that every child in the world could become what he or she feels or her heart. Visit me at
