Jarrett J. Krosoczka used to be a goofy kid that liked to draw. Now, he is an award-winning published author/illustrator with many books to his credit. Six months after graduating RISD, Jarrett carried his portfolio into New York City and landed a contract for his first book. He immediately ran to a pay phone to share the good news with his grandparents. Good Night, Monkey Boy was published on June 12, 2001, and Jarrett has since been busy producing many more books. His work has been short listed by Newsweek, USA Today, The Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. Jarrett's book Punk Farm, which is about a group of raucous farm animals who form an underground rock band, is currently in development as a feature film.



This is a beautiful book -- it's both a memoir about finding perspective through service to others and about appreciating the beauty of the life we have. I loved that the message is so positive, the kids are such a funny, joyful group despite being so close to death, and that Jarrett's kindness is just radiating off the page.

What a beautiful book and story! Jarrett Krosoczka tells his story of volunteering at Camp Sunshine for a week in the summer during high school. He's assigned a family to eat with and a one-on-one camper. It's a book about connection, celebrating life, and dealing with tough stuff.

Gr 7 Up—Krosoczka’s tender follow-up to Hey, Kiddo depicts a life-changing experience at Camp Sunshine, a
summer camp for children with severe illness, and their accompanying families. The warmth from the relationships.
NB: Also won 2023 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award.
