Review

Praise for Olympig!

"A humorous romp."—
Publishers Weekly

"Jamieson's acrylic illustrations create a cast of characters that express themselves clearly; there is a quality of comic melodrama to the sequence of Boomer's trials. Asides in amusing speech balloons add to the fun."—
Children's Literature

"Jamieson snatches moral victory from the jaws of athletic defeat with warmth, satirical wit, and old-fashioned silliness. Her drawings and formats are wonderfully varied, colorful, and bursting with personality. Subtle, funny commentaries will be appreciated by slightly older readers, stretching Olympig's appeal."—
School Library Journal 


Praise for Roller Girl

A New York Times Bestseller
A Spring 2015 Indie Next Pick


Roller Girl's message of self-discovery, friendship, and perseverance will roll its way right into your heart.” —Raina Telgemeier, New York Times bestselling author of Sisters

“This spiky, winning graphic novel captures the bittersweetness of finding a new passion and saying goodbye to your former, more uncertain self.”—
New York Times Book Review

* "Jamieson captures this snapshot of preteen angst with a keenly decisive eye, brilliantly juxtaposing the nuances of roller derby with the twists and turns of adolescent girls' friendships...Full of charm and moxie—don't let this one roll past."—
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* “The story will engage readers… Offer this comic to fans of Telgemeier’s Smile and Laura Lee Gulledge’s Page by Paige.”—
School Library Journal, starred review

* "Readers will stand up and cheer."—
Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Jamieson’s dialogue captures coming-of-age…so authentically"—
Horn Book, starred review

* "[A] sharp and engaging graphic novel”—
BCCB, starred review

"Visually, 
Roller Girl is very appealing—think Lynn Johnston with a modern edge—but it's the storytelling that really sets this graphic novel apart…A great choice for tween girls, whether they're remaking themselves, renegotiating friendships or just weathering the stormy seas of early adolescence."—Chicago Tribune


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I grew up in Havertown, Pennsylvania, where I wrote and illustrated my first book in the third grade. SUPER COW! was a smash hit both with critics (my teacher) and collectors (my parents).

When I was twelve years old, my family moved to Florida. My parents tried to get me and my two brothers excited about our move by buying us season passes to Disney World. I loved watching the animators at work on the Backstage Tour, and I decided I wanted to work for Disney when I grew up.

I attended the Rhode Island School of Design, but soon found myself drawn back towards illustration instead of animation. After graduation and a slew of ill-fated careers (including a portrait artist on a Carnival Cruise ship and a conductor of illegal tours through the Vatican Museums), I began working as a book designer with a children's book publisher in New York.

I live in Pennsylvania with my husband, son, and surly cat Sharon.

Was not happy that the book came damaged. I think my second graders will like this as a read aloud when we talk about the Olympics in May.
