Jarrett and Jerome’s first book, The Old Truck, was an Ezra Jack Keats Award Author Honor Book and was named a Best Book of the Year by Kirkus Reviews, Booklist, Publishers Weekly, and Horn Book Fanfare, among other honors. Their second book, The Old Boat, was called a “thought-provoking story of environmental change and the power humans have to stop it” by Kirkus Reviews (starred review).
