Jessie Wee is one of the most prominent writers for children in Singapore. She was a teacher for 12 years before a chance encounter with a little button-eyed mouse in her kitchen started her writing stories out of a conviction that u201cchildren in Singapore need stories they can identify with, stories they can call their ownu201d. In the course of her writing career, Jessie has written more than 30 books for children, three of which have won awards from the National Book Development Council of Singapore (NBDCS). In 2013, Jessie was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award in Childrenu2019s Literature by the NBDCS, recognising her outstanding and significant contribution as a writer. Jessie is planning to release another three titles in the near future.
