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. Jessica is the author of I'LL MEET YOU IN YOUR DREAMS (Little, Brown), the award-winning MY BLUE IS HAPPY (Candlewick Press), BABY'S HERE! (Clarion), the FAIRYLIGHT FRIENDS early reader series (Scholastic Acorn), the HAGGIS AND TANK UNLEASHED early chapter book series (Scholastic Branches), PLAY THIS BOOK and PET THIS BOOK (Bloomsbury), A WISH IS A SEED (Creative Editions), the FINLEY FLOWERS chapter book series (Capstone Young Readers), and SPY GUY THE NOT-SO-SECRET AGENT (HMH Books for Young Readers). When she's not writing, she loves sharing the creative process with young readers.
