Author and Illustrator
Gillian McClure’s career as an author and illustrator spans four decades. Her books have been translated into many languages and Selkie, published originally by Doubleday, won the US Parent’s Guide to Children’s Media Award for Outstanding Achievement in Children's Books.
Some of her picture books, like Tom Finger, published by Bloomsbury, have been inspired by fairy tales; timeless and placeless yet relevant to children today.
Gillian uses her stories and illustrations to inspire children to read and write. Go to her Visits page for more information about the workshops and talks she offers to schools and libraries.
