“Stories keep memories alive and people real to us.”
JARRETT J. KROSOCZKA, HEY, KIDDO
New York Times best-selling author/illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka creates books with humor, heart, and a deep respect for his young readers—qualities that have made his titles perennial favorites on the bookshelves of homes, libraries, and bookstores. First published at the age of twenty-three, Jarrett has more than thirty published books to his credit. Titles include several picture books, his wildly popular Lunch Lady graphic novels, and the Platypus Police Squad middle-grade novels. Jarrett became a National Book Award finalist with Hey, Kiddo, a profoundly important memoir about growing up in a family grappling with addiction, and finding the art that helps you survive.
Jarrett has given two TED Talks which have collectively accrued more than two million views online. He is also the host of The Book Report with JJK on SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live, a weekly segment celebrating books, authors, and reading.
“A must-have, this book will empower readers.”
