  • Short Description
An alphabetical tour through the coolest jobs you can imagine—and some you might never have heard of!

An alphabetical tour through the coolest jobs you can imagine—and some you might never have heard of! With a sophisticated, minimalist design and visual jokes to interpret on every page, Work: An Occupational ABC introduces children both to the alphabet and to a range of alternative careers.

The ideal reader for this book is the child (or adult) who is interested in exploring all manner of professions through original and inspired illustrations. Must be open to adventure. Knowledge of the alphabet is desirable but not required, since successful applicants will receive training from A to Z.

Occupations from aviator through zoologist are highlighted in this breezy alphabet book. . . . Fun and absorbing. - Booklist

Work is just too much fun, fun, fun. Canadian designer/artist Hatanaka’s whimsical style infuses each unexpected occupational letter with so much more than a single word. - BookDragon

The sophisticated design and use of white space give the book flair, and it can be an effective springboard for use in the classroom. - Kirkus Reviews

A beautiful and unexpected piece of art for the youngest readers . . . as much a delight to read as it is to behold. - Deakin Review of Children's Literature

Hatanaka’s inclusive and wry portrayal of 26 occupations turns fewer than 100 words into magic. - Quill & Quire

Hatanaka weaves bold graphics and soft shades into a tapestry of tender vignettes about people of all shapes, sizes, and colors. - Brain Pickings
