    Ross Montgomery started writing stories as a teenager, when he should have been doing homework, and continued doing so at university. After graduating, he decided to channel these skills into teaching at a primary school. He wrote his books when he really should have been marking homework. He lives in London with his girlfriend, a cat and many, many dead plants. The Building Boy is his first picture book.

    David Litchfield lives in Bedfordshire. He first started to draw when he was very young, creating comics for his siblings. Since then David's work has appeared in magazines, newspapers, books and on T-shirts. He has also exhibited his illustrations in both solo and group shows in the UK, Europe and America. He is the author/illustrator of the award winning picture book The Bear and the Piano.
