    A rather interesting and quirky tale of a girl called Jess who had a sad disposition, and how she came about to finding that elusive laughter through the mysterious wiggles, who happened to turn her sad demeanor into a happy one. I find the letters to be a bit too squiggly a bit too distracting to read but nonetheless, it was a good story with its interesting characters and it makes a lovely bedtime story to read to your kids.

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

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.

    “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 w “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.

    Written in a cool dancing font, sure to intrigue children and parents alike, Uvi Poznansky’s Jess and Wiggle feels like a perfect cross between my mother’s old books and my children’s new. The rhyming text is clean and smooth, easy to read aloud, and fun. The facial expressions of miserable Jess are so sweet and convincing. And the blend of old-fashioned painting and drawing with bright cut-out stylization makes for a book whose pages are truly a delight to turn.

And the blend of old-fashioned painting and drawing with bright cut-out stylization makes for a book whose pages are truly a delight to turn. For added enjoyment, in the kindle edition you can click on words to see them in fonts easy enough for a beginning reader to enjoy. Plus the poem’s repeated in simple text at the end. Jess and Wiggle converse, they dance, they play, and it’s all nicely vague for any care-giver to share with a child. A beautiful book for adults and children who appreciate the fun of art and words. Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy and I offer my honest review.

    Oh this is so sweet. A book to challenge a young mind. I know from my friends' children that at the age this is aimed for children need a picture on every page without too many words but enough to give them time to watch the pictures closely. This is sure true for this book and also the story does not assume the child to be an idiot but rather explainst a truth as is. Also not all the words in this book is average usages for a child the age this book is aimed at so I am sure that is also a good Oh this is so sweet. A book to challenge a young mind.

    It's a lucky child who gets a book by Uvi Poznansky written for children. A book like this helps a smart child get smarter, and be proud of who and what he/she is. I was a smart child who needed early stimulation, and few books such as this were available. Thank you, Uvi. Now I know what to get all my friends who have young children for the holidays. (And yes, grown-up, you'll enjoy it to, unless your inner child is dead and buried or AWOL.) It's a lucky child who gets a book by Uvi Poznansky written for children.

It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great children’s adventure movie, an animated cartoon, classroom PP presentation, or better yet a mini TV series. It was very well designed but the font was hard to read. It was just OK for me so I will only rate it at 4/5 stars. Thank you for the free author; BookSends; Amazon Digital Services LLC.; book Tony Parsons MSW (Washburn)

    ess is a beautiful young child, but she lacks the ability to smile. She has an active imagination. One day Jess invents a friend that she calls Wiggle. Wiggle is a ribbon-like creature. Jess invokes a contest to see which of them will break down and smile first. I won't ruin the surprise by revealing the ending. The artwork is beautiful, soft and charming containing rhymes that are in sync. While the text font is beautiful, I did find it difficult to read at some points.

    My children love these little books. They thoroughly enjoy each and every story, as if they are all unique and individual without any cause for similarity among them. Even though sometimes, they might seem tedious and repetitive to me as a parent, I do enjoy being able to read short-stories to my children that are clean and respective.

    Hard to follow or read This book seems difficult for children to understand, and the plot is difficult to follow. I found the font hard to read. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous though.

    No giggle Not quite funny enough to make a child giggle - possibly a smile at the end but something was missing
