About the author


Jessy was first published as a kindergartener for a poem she wrote about kangaroos. Now, 30 years later, she's thrilled to share her second publication with the world. Her copywriting has spanned the likes of Silicon Valley tech companies, global advertising agencies, and even a family mushroom farm — but this is her first children's book (though adults are welcome to enjoy it, too). Jessy resides in St. Louis with her trusty longdog Peanut. And she only forgets to water her plants sometimes.
