Ali Teo & John O'Reilly work closely together in the illustration and design of their picture books, with fantastic results, as evidenced in the award-winning Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck! and the 2013 White Ravens selection and NZ Post Children's Book Awards finalist Melu. Other Scholastic titles include Duck's Stuck and Chick's Sick. Ali and John live by the beach in beautiful Mt Maunganui with their son, Tiger.
