The engaging text in this question-and-answer story is perfectly suited for children just learning to read. Goodman's uproarious illustrations are packed with wonderfully creepy details that children will love. "A fascinating brew combining pop culture, Halloween symbols, (and) favorite book characters".--Kirkus Reviews. Full color.

Review: Guess What?

User Review  - Amber Fuhrman - Goodreads

This would be a fun book for students to read because it lets them guess what the end job will be. With all of the clues given, they can begin to guess. This book may not have a lesson behind it, but it lets students explore their imaginations and try and guess what the end result could be. Read full review

User Review  - Erica Mayberry - Goodreads

I like this book because it explores the judgmental tendencies of everyone. It makes it clear that even though people's lives appear one way, they could be totally different. Read full review

About the author (1995)

Australian writer, Mem Fox was born on March 5th, 1946 in Melbourne. At the age of six months, she and her parents who were missionaries moved to Zimbabwe and she attended the mission school there. At the age of eighteen, she left Zimbabwe and attended a drama school in London. She eventually returned to Australia where she was a college professor. She held the position as Associate Professor, Literacy Studies, in the School of Education at Flinders University, South Australia. Fox is considered Australia's most popular children's author. Her title Possum Magic, a title dedicated to her daughter, is the best-selling picture book in Australia. It was also named a Highly Commended Book by the Children's Book Council of Australia and Best Children's Book in the 1984 New South Wales Premier's Literary Awards. Night Noises was a Notable Children's Book in Language Arts, and a 1990 Horn Book Fanfare selection. It was also named by Redbook magazine as one of the ten best picture books of 1989. Other titles written by Fox include Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge, Time for Bed, Koala Lou, Wombat Divine, Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, Hello Baby!, A Giraffe in the Bath (co-written with Olivia Rawson), Count Goats!, and The Little Dragon. Fox has written over twenty picture books for children and several others for adults. Other awards received by Fox include the 1990 Dromkeen Medal for distinguished services to children's literature, a 1991 Advance Australia Award for her outstanding contribution to Australian literature and a medal in the 1993 Australia Day Honours awards for services to the cultural life of Australia. Although writing is her profession now, teaching is her first love. In addition to writing, she is an international literacy consultant who is in great demand to speak at literacy conferences nationally and internationally.
