About ‘Jillian Jiggs’ by Phoebe Gilman

Jillian Jiggs is a picture book by Canadian/American writer and illustrator Phoebe Gilman, originally published by Scholastic in 1985.

lrg_cvr_jillianjiggsGilman’s lively rhyming text alongside her equally playful pictures tells the story of the spritely young Jillian, who tries again and again to set her mind to cleaning up her very messy room. Although she promises her mother that she’ll tidy up just as soon as she’s through playing dress-up, her imagination regrettably keeps getting in the way.
