About Jessica Young
Jessica Young grew up in Ontario, Canada. The same things make her happy now as when she was a kid: dancing, painting, music, digging in the dirt, picnics, reading, and writing. When she was little, she wanted to be a tap-dancing flight attendant/veterinarian, but she's changed her mind! The only thing she loves as much as writing is sharing the creative process with students.
Jessica’s award-winning picture books, early readers, and chapter books have been included on many lists and span a variety of reading levels and interests. They include the Fairylight Friends early reader series, the Haggis and Tank Unleashed early chapter book series, My Blue is Happy, Play This Book and Pet This Book, A Wish is a Seed, the Finley Flowers chapter book series, Spy Guy the Not-So-Secret Agent, and I’ll Meet You in Your Dreams.
