Jarret J. Krosoczka
Jarret J. Krosoczka was once a goofy kid that enjoyed drawing. He is now a published author/illustrator with a lot of books to his credit.

Growing up in Worcester, Massachusetts Jarret was always drawing and always had a cast of characters that he was writing stories about. When he was in the ninth grade, Jarrett won a contest with The Worcester Telegram & Gazette and saw his work in print, for the first time.

It sparked a fire within him. He went on to graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design, after he was initially rejected. It was during his senior year that he got his very first illustration job for a national education publisher. Six months after he graduated RISD, he took his portfolio into New York City and got a contract for his first book. Immediately, he ran off to a pay phone so he could share the good news with his grandparents. “Good Night, Monkey Boy” was published June 12, 2001.

Jarrett’s books have landed on many recommendation lists, including the IRA/CBC Chrildren’s Choice Awards and the Texas 2X2 list. He has been selected by Print as one of their twenty top new visual artists under the age of thirty and has had his work short listed by USA Today, Newsweek, The New York Times, and The Boston Globe, among others. “Hey, Kiddo” was a National Book Award Finalist.
