Primary Schools Event: Gillian Hibbs

Gillian has had many jobs, including party entertainer, zoo presenter, and not-very-good barista. She also wrote and illustrated three popular picture books, ‘Errol’s Garden, Tilly’s At Home Holiday/Tilly’s Staycation’ and ‘Covered in Adventures.'

She lives by the ocean, where she spends her time drawing, looking for sea creatures, and thinking about whales.
