Maria Dek

A Walk in the Forest introduced the enormously talented Maria Dek, and When I Am Big is a beguiling follow up to her first success. Charming illustrations and text encourage young children to explore what they can do as they grow up. The adventurous child imagines I will tie my shoes all by myself, make 3 knots with big bows"; to eat twenty pizzas in one sitting, or walk animals, eight at a time, while teaching them tricks. When I Am Big is also an unconventional counting book, as it goes all the way to twenty-five. The result is a book that nourishes a child's curiosity, confidence, and delight in the world's wonders.

Based in Gdan´¢sk, Poland, Maria Dek holds an art degree from both the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and University of the Arts, London. She has written and illustrated three children's books, including A Walk in the Forest and the forthcoming Good Morning Neighbor .
