Mark Teague‘s first book, published in 1989, earned Teague a spot in Publishers Weekly, where he was named one of 11 prominent new authors. Since then his highly original stories and illustrations have been published internationally to great acclaim. His numerous awards and honors include both the Book Sense Book of the Year Award and the Christopher Medal, and his titles regularly appear on the bestseller lists.
Teague is perhaps best known for the New York Times bestselling How Do Dinosaurs… books he creates with Jane Yolen, with more than fourteen million copies in print. Mark continues to write and illustrate books himself, including the widely popular Dear Mrs. LaRue series, and The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf.
