This juvenile novel flows easily and has characters that are easy for kids to relate to. Kelly sometimes uses words younger readers may not understand, but she always follows the words with humorous definitions so that kids will not become confused. The plot has numerous unpredictable twists and Kelly's sense of humor adds to this sense of unpredictability.
Kids reading this story will learn the truth of Psalm 139:14"I am fearfully and wonderfully made." They will also learn that God has a story He has written just for them in which they are the heroes and heroines. Jackson Jones is appropriate for children in upper elementary school and junior high, but if parents choose to read it to their children, they, too, will find themselves enjoying it.

Tell us a little about yourself. Jenn Kelly lives in Ottawa, Canada, but her heart lives in Paris. Or Hawaii. She hasn't decided yet. She is an undercover garden guru, painter, and chef, which has absolutely nothing to do with this book. She won a writing award in grade 4, failed English Lit in university, spent many years writing bad poetry, and then decided to write a book. This is it. She is married to her best friend, Danny, and is mom to a five-year-old boy and a dog who worries too much. She embraces the ridiculousness and disorganization of life.
What was your motivation behind this project? To give people something to think about. To get people to think about God in a non-preachy way. To make them laugh.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope they will be more curious about God.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? It was definitely a side by side project with God, so it was great working with Him on something I'm so proud of. In a materialistic way: finding out that Zondervan wanted to publish it. That blew my mind.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass, Peter Pan, the Secret Garden, my forestry education at Lakehead University, my son, every kid in the world who wanted an adventure and a friend.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I failed English Lit at University. You don't have to graduate cum laude or honours to write a great book. Don't give up on your dreams. Always search for answers. Always put God first.
