Jarrett J. Krosoczka used to be a goofy kid that liked to draw. Now, he is a published author/illustrator with many books to his credit. Growing up in Worcester, MA Jarrett drew relentlessly and always had a cast of characters that he wrote stories for. In 9th grade, Jarrett won a contest with The Worcester Telegram & Gazette and for the first time—saw his work in print.

This sparked a fire within. He went on to graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design, after being initially rejected. It was in his senior year that he received his first illustration job for a national educational publisher. Then, six months after graduating RISD, Jarrett carried his portfoli

Q&A Time

When the audience numbers over a thousand students, I go to them for Q&A... and make a Donahue reference that none of them get. See that little grey spec in the back? That’s me!

Necks Out is so much fun and the illustrations are jaw-droppingly beautiful. The paintings in the book are to behold! I would say they rival J.M.W. Turner in terms of skill in depicting light and water. This is a story about clams... I mean wigleskin ...more

Saleh Hi.What We Talk About When We Talk About Love?PLZ Answer The Question In My Profile.



Sheila Me and my kids just visited your website. We watched all of the previews for your books. They were fantastic! Now they want all of your books...I do also! You are very talented. We will be making a trip to the library soon to check out your books. Soon, I am sure, they will be part of our home collection of books.


Leprocess yo!! good reads rules! but more importantly, you rule!

Mary I read Punk Farm to a group of preschoolers today. At the last page, I asked them why they thought the animals were sleeping. One boy, who had been playing a particularly energetic air guitar while I was "singing" Old MacDonald, piped up with: "Because they rocked hard." Yes, indeed, they rocked hard.
