Billy’s classmates may have never considered careers in snail training or sumo wrestling before, but by the time the exuberant eight-year-old is done cataloging his dream jobs, they just might share his belief in unlimited potential.

Virtuoso wordplay, irresistible rhythm, and laugh-out-loud humor abound in the first picture book by the one and only “Weird Al” Yankovic. This unbridled celebration of creativity and possibility invites readers of all ages to consider afresh what they want to be when they grow up.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Celebrates individuality in an exuberantly odd, rhyming story about an eight-year-old who cannot wait to share what he will be when he grows up…Along with the imaginative play, the farce and parody make this a rare book with appeal to both kids and adults.”

    Booklist

  • “[Yankovic’s] rollicking tone and accelerating pace put listeners firmly in the perspective of hyperactive, hyperbolic 8-year-old Billy.”

About the Author

Al “Weird Al” Yankovic, known for more than thirty years as America’s premier satirist of pop music and culture, has had almost as many careers as Billy can dream of. Advised by his father to do whatever made him happy, he has accordingly been a comedian, singer/songwriter, music producer, actor, director, and writer—often all at the same time. Mr. Yankovic has won three Grammy Awards and has sold more comedy recordings than anyone else in history. He lives with his family in Southern California.
