He has published short fiction and poetry in various journals online and in print. This is his first book. He lives and dads in his hometown of Clinton, Massachusetts. Aniela Sobieski is an artist from Minnesota. She earned a BFA in painting from the University of Wisconsin--Madison and an MFA from Syracuse University. Her artwork has been exhibited and collected both nationally and internationally. The Day We Lost Pet is her debut as a children's book illustrator. She lives with her husband and two-year-old daughter in Saint Paul.


"This supremely tender book is one that readers will return to again and again, if they can bear it, finding new meaning with each reading and in each new stage of life. Breathtakingly original." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Young can be irreverent, but The Day We Lost Pet is a beautiful story and it's brilliantly illustrated by Sobieski...a beautiful, if tragic, discussion on love and loss, life and death." -- Worcester Magazine
"A good strange children's book makes you want to return to it over and over again. Sometimes, because with each subsequent reading you get something out of it. Sometimes, because you didn't quite get it the first time. Sometimes both. Chalk this one up in the "both" field." -- Betsy Bird / School Library Journal, Oddest Books of 2018
