The nightlife of Jacuzzi Gaskett

2019by Brontez Purnell and Elise R. Peterson

The first children's book from multi-genre artist Brontez Purnell, a 2018 winner of the Whiting Award, sweetly portrays a common but rarely narrated childhood experience --having a single parent and taking care of a younger sibling. With illustrations by Brooklyn artist Elise R. Peterson, The Nightlife of Jacuzzi Gaskett recounts 11- year-old Jacuzzi's evening activities while he cares for his baby brother and waits for mama's arrival home. He ponders his dad, school, and his future--and when his brother wakes up, Jacuzzi knows just how to get him back to sleep.
