When I Grow Up - UK Cover

When I Grow Up, the new magical picture book inspired by Tim’s hit song from the acclaimed and multi-award-winning Matilda the Musical, will be published on the 5th October in the UK.

The book will be illustrated by Steve Antony, an internationally published, award-winning author and illustrator. It imagines life from a child’s viewpoint, with all the humour and poignancy of the song.

The book is available to pre-order from the following UK booksellers:

Book Depository

and in digital format from iTunes.

For those in Australia and the US: Scholastic Australia will be publishing simultaneously in October 2017 and Scholastic US will be publishing in summer 2018, although with different covers. We’ll reveal those covers as soon as we have them.

Can’t wait to share the book with my grandkids! They know the song well and sing it especially while they are on their swing sets! What a great influence you have been on them, Tim! Hope all is well! Love, MaryLou from NJ
