How to get on swimmingly with your best friend!
Ann Bonwill and Simon Rickerty
Ann Bonwill grew up in America. Her mother worked as a children's librarian so Ann was always surrounded by books and she loved to read and write stories throughout her childhood. After gaining a psychology degree and a master's degree in social work, Ann worked in a variety of social care positions in schools and hospitals and taught at a Montessori school. Ann lives in the US with her husband and young son. Ann is the author of Pocket's Christmas Wish, also published by OUP.

He studied illustration at the London College of Communication and graduated with a BA (Hons) in Graphic and Media Design. He then went on to complete a Masters in Communication, Art and Design at the Royal College of Art. Simon lives in Somerset.
