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 author herself. 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.

    Jess and Wiggle

    “Jess would not give a giggle Till the day she met Wiggle” Jess and Wiggle by Uvi Poznansky is a touching children’s rhyming story. A child without a smile is a sad premise but this is an uplifting little story. Inspiring. Beautifully illustrated and delightfully told. This is a necessary story that I believe will be very helpful to all children who can use a little inspiration. This is an ode to a little girl. Precious and endearing. A love story to all the little one’s in your life. Quote ~ “For with her, it was simple Not a smile - not a dimple! You could huff, you could puff Jess would not even laugh”
