Lily Murray (Author) Lily Murray studied English Literature at university and has worked as a writer and editor for over 15 years. She enjoys walking, birdwatching, reading books with her children, reading books without her children and talking to her dog.Chris Wormell (Illustrator) Chris is a self-taught artist; he never went to art college or had any formal training: "Which is probably why I hold the tools wrongly," he explains - a fact that makes his obvious raw talent all the more enchanting. He works using two main methods: wood engraving and linocut, as well as writing and illustrating his own children's books. Working for a diverse collection of clients worldwide, Chris' unmistakable style has lent itself to some fantastic campaigns that have been highly commended throughout the industry, including the cover artwork for the bestselling H is for Hawk. Chris has been with The Artworks since the mid- 1980's and continues to pave the way in his field and as a true ambassador for the craft of illustration.
