Short biography
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.
