More About the Author

Jarrett J. Krosoczka has been passionate about storytelling through words and pictures since he was a kid. He began his professional career by illustrating educational readers for a national publisher while still an undergraduate at Rhode Island School of Design. Then, just six months after graduation, Jarrett received his first contract for a trade book that he authored. Knopf Books for Young Readers published Good Night, Monkey Boy on June 12, 2001 and Jarrett hasn't stopped or slowed down since.

Jarrett is a two-time winner of the Children's Choice Book Award for the Third to Fourth Grade Book of the Year and is the author and/or illustrator of more than twenty-five books for young readers. His work includes several picture books, the Lunch Lady graphic novels and Platypus Police Squad middle-grade novel series. Jarrett has given two TED Talks, both of which have been curated to the main page of TED.com and have collectively accrued nearly two million views online. He is also the host of The Book Report with JJK on SiriusXM's Kids Place Live, a weekly segment celebrating books, authors and reading. His work has been featured on the front page of The Boston Globe and on NPR's All Things Considered. Jarrett's books have also been recommended by national publications such as Newsweek, The New York Times and USA Today. His Punk Farm picture book and Lunch Lady series are both currently in development as feature films. Jarrett lives in Western Massachusetts with his wife and two daughters, and their pugs.

I purchased this book to accompany a summer camp "unit" for 4 about to be 5's.

It met my needs in that we did not have anything for the color purple. The kids liked the story. It was read only once and we moved on...I will use it again when school opens. We made purple elephant bag puppets to take home. It will probably be more "read" the next time as the books will be available before class and during "free" time.

Found this book at our local library and after renewing about 5 times, decided to just buy it. My 5 year old loves it. We read it probably 4/5 nights a week. Very nice quality and wonderful illustrations.

It's a cute story and the kids really liked it. My five year old kindergartener says "it's really super great!"
