Jessica Young

Jessica Young grew up in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. When she was little, she wanted to be a tap-dancing flight attendant/veterinarian, but she’s changed her mind. However, the same things make her happy now as when she was a kid: dancing, painting, music, digging in the dirt, picnics, reading, and writing. Her award-winning debut picture book, My Blue Is Happy, is a 2014 Charlotte Zolotow Highly Commended Title, a 2014 Bank Street College Best Children’s Book of the Year, a 2014 Texas Library Association 2×2 Reading List Selection, an Ontario Library Association Best Bets Selection, a 2013 Toronto Public Library First & Best List Selection, an Ontario Library Association Blue Spruce Award Nominee, an Association of Children’s Librarians of Northern California Distinguished Book, and a Library of Congress Center for the Book 52 Great Reads List Selection. She is also the author of Spy Guy: The Not-So-Secret Agent and the Finley Flowers chapter-book series. Her early-chapter-book series, Haggis and Tank Unleased will be published in Spring 2016. She lives with her family in Nashville, Tennessee.
