Following on the success of Since I Laid My Burden Down, join Whiting Award-winning author Brontez Purnell as he reads from his first children’s book, which is an inspired portrayal of a common but rarely narrated childhood experience—taking care of a younger sibling.
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.
Brooklyn artist Elise R. Peterson (How Mamas Love Their Babies) brings the story to life through vibrant and textured images of Jacuzzi’s world, both the interior life of his home and the expansive imagination that takes him to the stars and back. All before Mama comes home.
