Synopsis

Once there was a boy. At first, he was so small he didn't even have a name. But as soon as he was born, the boy began to grow. He kept growing, even though he could not walk, talk or feed himself. When people said, My, what a big boy you are, he knew they were right. Before long, the boy could see on top of the table instead of just underneath. He took big steps, ate big meals and used big words. He even slept in a big bed, went to a big school, and played with bigger boys. Soon the boy got so big that his world began to grow too--and as it did, so did the promise of everything he was and everything he would be! Bold drawings and childlike text come together in a universally appealing book that celebrates the one thing every child can do--get bigger! Daniel Kirk lives in New Jersey.

Likewise, the illustrations, which fit in a rectangle, expand page by page, so that full-bleed pictures eventually sprawl across the gutter and crowd the words.
