NYT-bestselling 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.
