If you're into children's books, the chances are pretty good you're familiar with author and illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka. Just a few of his many titles are Baghead, Punk Farm, My Buddy Slug, Punk Farm On Tour, and Max for President (right? right?).
Recently Jarrett has delved into graphic novels with his new Lunch Lady series about a crime-fighting, pizza slinging lunch lady with tons of spy gadgetry. The first three Lunch Lady installments (The Cyborg Substitute, The League of Librarians, and The Author Visit Vendetta) are in stores now with The Summer Camp Shakedown hitting shelves in May. Do yourself a favor and check them out. Awesome.
In between Jarrett's dozens and dozens of school visits, signings and travels promoting Lunch Lady (the man is unstoppable) he made time for what we're going to call a Postcard Interview. I sent questions from Home Base Arizona, and he released dispatches from the road. It took four months, but I think you'll like the results. Here they are in chronological order with each postcard shown front and back. Enjoy!

I just found this drawing in my mailbox from Max, age 4, in Fountain, Colorado. It's an exploding robot! Nice job, Max!
If you've got your own exploding robot, crashing planet, or dachshund portrait, then I'd love to see it! Send it along to:
