Gail Ilott

I was born in a little town called Clydebank in Scotland. At the age of six my family moved to Canada where I attended many schools until our return back to the U.K in 1978. My favourite author growing up was Dr Seuss. I loved his rhyming stories. They were so quirky and silly. I enjoy writing poetry as well as drawing and sketching. I've always been creative and had a good imagination. Being a mum and working as a dinner lady and teaching assistant definitely influenced and enriched my imagination. Children do and say the funniest things.



  • Silly Anna


    Silly Anna is a wonderful piece by Gail Ilott. Silly Anna loves to talk about her friends at school and at home. Her best friends are Riley, Bogey Face and Polly, the spider who lives behind the curtain in her room. She wants to find the Jelly Bean Planet and to be a "Bottom Burping" camel.
