This innovative book takes an alternative look at 12 occupations and the people who fill them. It's aim is to open up children's imaginations to the possibility that there are many more roles open to them than they may think. It doesn't just simply depict male nurses, female engineers and similar familiar sterotype-busting examples, but more broad-ranging examples of unusual people doing unusual jobs, such as Sikh lollipop man, a female clown and a black British Space Scientist. Benjamin Zephaniah's lyrical and amusing text also draws on his own experience of being stereotyped and misjudged because of the colour of his skin and the stle of his hair. Prodeepta Das is a master of photographing people in everyday situations and he brings to this project all the skill that made We Are Britain such an outstanding book. Jobs featured: Lollipop man, Clown, Space Scientist, Laywer, Concervational, Farmer, Vet, Pilot, Illustrator, Chef, Museum Director, Architect.
