Gabrielle Grimard

Gabrielle Grimard was born in 1975 in Montreal and studied art at Concordia and l’Université du Québec à Montréal (l’UQÀM). Although she took on many art projects after graduating, she did not start illustrating picture books until after the birth of her son. Her artwork appears in over 25 children’s books and includes the award-winning picture books by Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margaret PokiakFenton, When I Was Eight and Not My Girl. For her Skipping Stones Award Honor Book, Lila and the Crow, Gabrielle is both the author and illustrator. Website: gabriellegrimard.com. Instagram: @gabriellegrimard_illustratrice.

Reviews of Lila and the Crow (Lila et la corneille)

  • “In her authorial debut, Montreal illustrator Gabrielle Grimard tackles bullying and diversity through the heartbreaking story of Lila, whose new classmates mock her for looking different” – In Quill & Quire 
  • “Lila is hopeful that she will be able to make friends in her new school. However, daily her classmates make fun of her hair, eyes, and skin colour, calling her a crow” – In CM Magazine

Lila et la corneille

Lila vient d’emménager dans une nouvelle ville. Excitée à l’idée de se faire de nouveaux amis, elle est abasourdie lorsque, dès le premier jour d’école, un petit garçon montre du doigt ses cheveux couleur ébène et la traite de corneille.

Le cœur lourd, Lila aperçoit une corneille en rentrant chez elle. Elle tente de chasser l’oiseau, mais il semble l’attendre chaque soir. Jour après jour, l’oiseau sombre donnera un peu d’espoir à Lila et lui insufflera le courage d’être elle-même et de briller.

Une histoire poignante sur l’intimidation et sur l’acceptation de nos différences et de celles des autres.
