She started writing soon after she was married and began work on Adventures of the Little Wooden Horse, perhaps her most famous work, while expecting her first child.

Now aged 89, Ursula Moray Williams lives in Gloucestershire. Paul Howard studied at Leicester Polytechnic where he gained a first-class Honours Degree in Graphics. He has illustrated many successful children's titles, including Walker's Classic Poetry collection, and A Year in the City, winner of the Primary English Book Award.
