Matt Ralphs (Author) Matt Ralphs is a freelance writer of children's fiction and non-fiction. While working for many years as an editor he helped other writers create novels, comics, and lavish art books, including special editions made from engraved metal, branded wood and demon skin. He lives on the Grand Union Canal in England on a boat he christened Nostromo because Alien is his favourite film. Rui Ricardo (Illustrator) Rui Ricardo is a Portuguese illustrator based in Porto where he studied graphic design and academic drawing at the University of Fine Arts. His illustrations have been published in major American and British magazines and he has worked with many prominent international brands and publishers. As an avid backpacker, he has spent years travelling across Asia, Europe and bits of Africa and South America. This triggered a personal project consisting of Travel Posters that's been developing for over ten years. The collection now consists of over 100 different illustrations. When he's not drawing, you'll find him building and painting cardboard houses with his 5 year old daughter Laura (she loves big presents and Ikea because of the boxes!), riding his bicycle or playing the banjo and the ukulele.
