Good Night, Monkey Boy Board book – May 14, 2013
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Jarrett J. Krosoczka's first picture book captures a familiar occurrence in most households with children: the bedtime struggle. Monkey Boy is obsessed with his monkey persona--although no doubt he'll eventually progress into the next natural phase, perhaps Super Boy with a cape or Dinosaur Boy. Whatever his fixation, if he's like most kids, he'll use it to the utmost advantage in order to defend his right to stay up all night, snacking and watching TV. As in David Shannon's No, David!, the mother is an ambiguous figure of power. She looms mysteriously and is capable of tormenting the momentarily vulnerable Monkey Boy: "Of course I'll read you a story... " Her son looks sweetly hopeful. "...after you put these toys away!" Monkey Boy is crestfallen. If there were a sound track, we might hear cruel, maniacal laughter now. Still, before her final admonition to go to sleep, Mom tells her son she loves him, too.

I first learned about this book while attending Montserrat College of art. I am currently striving to become one of the few, and the proud: an illustrator. This sememster at school, a strange new poster appeared in one of the hallways. It read,"good night, Monkey boy". Underneath it was the name: Jarret Krosoczka. it sounded famillier. The images of monkey boy stuck in my head wherever I went, I knew that this was something special. Coincedentally the day I first laid my eyes on monkey boy was the same day I met my new teacher, Jarret Krosoczka. As far as first impressions are concerned, and from what I had seen of his work, I knew it was going to be an extremely fun class. His way of handling class, reflects his work-he can be incredibly fun to be around, but in the end he knows what he is doing. I recommend this book for kids of all ages, and any illustrators out there looking for something fresh. Jarret, you crazy.-
Fans of the "No, David" books by David Shannon will love this new board book by Jarrett J. Krosoczka, author of Punk Farm.
