      Description
      Errol loves gardening, but he doesn’t have a proper garden. Although his home is full of beautiful plants, he longs for an outdoor space where he can grow things. A chance discovery leads to a solution, but Errol can’t do everything on his own. Luckily, help is near at hand. A heart-warming and inclusive tale about how one small boy’s dream of a garden unites a diverse community in a positive and enriching experience for everyone.
      Bio
      Gillian spends much of her time making beautiful things in the basement studio under her dad’s bicycle shop, which she shares with a selection of friendly (but not very chatty) inner tubes and mudguards. Despite her underground work space, Gillian loves being outside in the garden, although she would probably be a more successful gardener if she was a bit less scared of wriggly things.

      Gillian spends a lot of her time in a studio in the basement of her dad’s bicycle shop – drawing, painting, printing - and trying to drown out the sound of people testing bells upstairs. Having completed her Illustration degree at Falmouth in 2012, Gillian has returned home to South East London where she enjoys doing as much exploring and adventuring as is possible with an empty piggy bank (quite a lot, actually). She is still searching for the perfect den. This is her first picture book.
