Gabrielle Grimard was born in Montreal in 1975 and went on to study art at Concordia and l’Université du Québec à Montréal (l’UQÀM). She has since illustrated over 30 picture books, including When I Was Eight, Not My Girl and Stolen Words, which won the 2018 Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Children’s Book Award. Lila and the Crow (Lila et la corneille), Grimard’s first book as both author and illustrator, won the 2017 Skipping Stones Magazine Honor Award, given to children’s books that contain important messages of diversity, environmentalism and multi-culturalism.
