What Will I Be? is the latest children’s picture book from innovative children’s publishers Digital Leaf.

Released as a board book in October 2014, though aimed at the 3-6 year old market, What Will I Be? invites young children to muse on their future careers, encouraging them to dream big and believe in their dreams.

A delightfully simple rhyming story by debut author Richard Sinclair, ‘What Will I Be?’ follows a father and son’s day together mulling the possibilities that lie ahead: chef, astronaut, athlete, scientist, the choice is yours! The story playfully provokes conversation about future careers while also celebrating the special bond between father and son.

What Will I Be? is an example of the latest trend of successful apps that then become other things. Beginning life in 2013 as an interactive book app, for both Apple and Android devices, What Will I Be? received multiple 5 star ratings from critics and readers alike.

Following up with a picture book version was the natural next step according to Neil Jeffries (Director at publisher’s Digital Leaf): ‘More and more characters and stories are starting off as apps. The successful ones go on to become books, movies, tv series, pyjama sets etc - the appeal almost always translates. ”

Jon Lycett-Smith illustrates the story with trademark bold colours and lots of humour, hot on the heels from recent success with picture books Moo Said Morris! and The Big Splash!, two of last summer’s big hits. Jon is rapidly making a name for himself in the picture book market – one to look out for now and in the future.

What Will I Be? is the first title of the When I Grow Up series of books and apps. The second title, Where Will I Go? is scheduled for a 2015 release as both app and book.
