Lynne Rickards

  • 5 stars across 42 books
    Lynne Rickards was born in Canada and now lives in Scotland with her husband and two children. She grew up writing and illustrating her own stories and actually went to art school at 18 to study illustration. However, she decided she was much happier writing the stories and loves to see artwork in her books, knowing it's so much better than anything she could ever have done. Lee Wildish has worked on many board and novelty books. This is his second picture book for Hodder - the first of which was received to great international acclaim.
