Written in rhyme, this is a story about a little girl who rarely smiles, till the day she meets Wiggle, an imaginary creature with whom she is having a contest: who will be the one to burst in laughter first?

Once there was a little girl
With the cutest reddish curl
Her name—how could you guess?
It was simply: Jess....

The paintings for the cover and interior pages were done by the Uvi Poznansky. The text is hand-written in a whimsically designed font. When Jess talks, her lines are drawn in a straight line; when Wiggle talks, his lines are drawn on a wiggly curve. Each color illustration is a hand-made collage.

Mary-Grace Bylo, 11-year-old reviewer:

Jess and WiggleJess and wiggle is a delightful story about a young girl that never laughs or smiles until she meets a small creature named wiggle. Wiggle tries to make Jess laugh and smile, then Jess caught wiggle and refused to release him. Then wiggle takes Jess high into the air and floating around them were socks, combs, and knots. Then while Jess was telling wiggle to stop with all of crazy doings she let a laugh a small laugh and a smile.

This book is great for kids with a great imagination. I would recommend this book for children ages 8 to 9 reading it by themselves and ages 5 to 7 having it read to them. The pictures are beautiful and colorful. I liked the way you made the story rhyme.

My Review
Uvia Poznansky’s Jess and Wiggle is pure whimsy and fantasy, perfect to engage the minds and imaginations of young children with the soft and colorful pictures filled with a melange of objects, as well as young Jess and the magical Wiggle. A beautiful way to send a small child off to dreamland with gentle rhyming, soft illustrations and delicate handwriting making this entire tale a work of art to treasure for generations from a gifted artist in all she does.

We received this edition from Uvi Poznansky in exchange for our honest reviews.
