About Ursula Moray Williams

Ursula Moray Williams (1911-) was born in Petersfield. 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. Gobbolino the Witch's Cat followed, and the two characters were later brought together in The Further Adventures of Gobbolino and the Little Wooden Horse. Now aged 90, 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, A Year in the City, winner of the Primary English Book Award, and most recently The Bravest Bear Ever (Walker) voted 'Best Book to Read Aloud' at the Blue Peter Awards. His recent picture book interpretation of The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark (Egmont), has been highly acclaimed. Paul Howard lives in Belfast.show more
