Mark Teague has delighted young readers with more than 20
picture books, and he has written many of them himself, including
the popular Pigsty, Baby Tamer, and One Halloween
Night. He is also the illustrator of Cynthia Rylant's
beloved Poppleton series for beginning readers and
the best-selling books by Jane Yolen, How Do Dinosaurs
Say Goodnight and How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon.
Mark Teague's life changed when he moved from San Diego to
New York City and he planted the seed for his first picture
book, The Trouble with the Johnsons. Each of Teague's
books start as "notebooks full of sketches and scribbles,
strange little drawings and phrases that suddenly come together,"
Teague explains. And although he had no formal writing training,
his endless imagination and understanding nature gives him
a permanent place in the hearts of everyone.
Mark and his wife live in Coxsackie, New York, with their
young daughter Lily, who has a great time watching her dad
paint the pictures in his books.
