Children, Graphic Novel, Illustration, Memoir, Young Adult

New York Times best-selling 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. His titles include several picture books, his wildly popular Lunch Lady graphic novels, and the Platypus Police Squad middle-grade novels.

Krosoczka's Hey, Kiddo is a graphic memoir about growing up in a family grappling with addiction and finding the art that helps you survive, and was a finalist for the 2018 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature.
