Author: John Cena is a beloved entertainer and dedicated philanthropist. His films include Ferdinand (2017) and the Transformers spin-off Bumblebee in 2018. Inspired by Richard Scarry—one of his favorite children's book creators—John has brought kids Elbow Grease, a story for young readers inspired by his own experiences growing up with four brothers, and one that shares his inspiring personal credo: hustle, loyalty, and respect.
Illustrator: Howard McWilliam left his career as a financial journalist and editor in 2005 to concentrate on his growing illustration career. While the business theme endures in regular illustrations for Moneyweek and The Sunday Telegraph’s Money section, he is perhaps best known as cover artist for The Week in the UK and US.
As a counterpoint to political caricature, Howard particularly enjoys drawing for children and has so far illustrated eight picture books and many black and white novels. His first picture book, I Need My Monster by Flashlight Press, won seven US state young readers’ prizes, has been translated into five other languages and been turned into an award-winning animation by the University of Colorado’s film department.
He lives in Cheltenham with his wife and two sons.
