Posy Simmonds was born in Berkshire and educated at Queen Anne's School, Caversham. She studied at the Sorbonne before returning to London to attend the Central School of Art & Design. She started her newspaper career drawing a strip for The Sun in 1969 before joining The Guardian as an illustrator in 1972.

In 1980 and 1981, Simmonds was named Cartoonist of the Year.

In 1987 Simmonds turned her hand to writing, as well as illustrating, children's books. Fred, the story of a cat with a secret life, was later filmed as Famous Fred and nominated for the Academy Award for Animated Short Film and several BAFTAs. Her other children's books include Lulu and the Flying Babies, The Chocolate Wedding and Lavender.

She was made a MBE in 2002 for her services to the newspaper industry.
