At night, Jacuzzi is real busy. He cares for his baby brother Jamaal, makes a blender cyclone, ponders life, and waits for Mama's arrival home.
The first children's book from multi-genre artist Brontez Purnell is an inspired portrayal of a common but rarely narrated childhood experience—taking care of a younger sibling.
“Most children’s books show one version of a family: a mom, a dad, stories and kisses at bedtime. The Nightlife of Jacuzzi Gaskett shows kids that there are other ways to live and grow and love your family.”
