Jessie Wee

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 button-eyed mouse in her kitchen started her writing stories out of a conviction that “children in Singapore need stories they can identify with, stories they can call their own”. 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 2003, Jessie was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award in Children’s Literature by the NBDCS, recognising her outstanding and significant contribution as a writer.
