Gilly’s Treasures

By Julie Murphy and Jay Fontano (Cedar Fort, Inc., 2016)

Gilly the seagull loves finding treasures – especially bright, shiny seashells. But will he miss the treasures already in his life? With beautiful illustrations and a story that’s fun to read aloud, this delightful picture book is perfect for children and parents alike.


“With the addition of humor and sprinkles of alliteration it’s a story to be read again and again.” Kaye Baillie (children’s author)

I trained as a zoologist and zookeeper, and have been a children’s book author and presenter for over twenty years. Why do I write? Because it’s fun! What do I write about? Mostly my main interests – animals and the environment.
