After a series of funny yet enlightening discoveries about all the possible things they can be, Blob realizes that the best thing to be is . . .

Blob.

Praise For…


An “ambiguous being” with a focused future makes for a fine role model. 
Kirkus Reviews

Blob will come as a comfort to any kids who struggle with the “what I want to be when I grow up” assignments. Our hero’s insistence on their right name additionally models useful behavior for kids who often have their names mispronounced.
