Gilles Tibo was an illustrator for many years before he discovered a passion for writing. His more than 150 books have won numerous prizes, including the Mr. Christie Award and the Alvine-Bélisle Prize. He also has nominations from IBBY Canada and the Hans Christian Andersen Prize. In 2009 one of his most beloved characters had her big screen debut in the film Noémie, The Secret.
In Gilles Tibo’s wonder-filled tribute to poetry, poems bloom in fields, fly on the wings of birds, and float on the foam of the sea. The verses bring poetry to the level of a child. After all, if all the world is a poem, then anyone can be a poet!
