Author bio:

William Bee was born in London, but now lives in the English countryside. As well as writing books, he races a vintage sports car, is an international skier, and when at home tends his lawns and meadow. Bee rarely leaves his tiny village, except for international skiing and vintage racing, but his daily walks lead to friendly encounters with the local wild life. He knows the local weasels, grass-snakes, moles and hedgehogs, as well as the family of deer that live in his garden. Bee writes his books on his various typewriters - including a classic Royal Sabre and a pair of Smith Corona Super Gs. His work has been displayed in various museums including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and Mitsukoshi Museum of Art in Japan.

Cecilia Johansson was born in a coastal town in the south east of Sweden and grew up with two teacher parents and a younger sister. As she was such a good student, she still took every opportunity to put homework aside and draw and draw. When she was twenty, Cecilia moved to the UK to study a degree in Graphic Design and then ended up staying for 7 years. Now she lives back in Sweden, Cecilia divides her time between her shared studio in an arty and creative part of Stockholm, and her boyfriend's small old cottage an hour outside the city, where the only neighbours are Mr Elk and the Fox Family. When not in her studio illustrating, Cecilia likes to play outdoors. She finds a lot of inspiration in nature and loves to go on long runs - training for her fifth marathon. Last year she bought herself a fancy mountainbike. 'I'm not very good yet so I end up with masses of bruises - but it's heaps of fun!'
