Happy Birthday, Mark Teague!
Mark Teague’s birthday is this week! Born on February 10, Mr. Teague is the author of many children’s books such as The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf, Funny Farm, and Firehouse! as well as illustrator of over 40 more titles, including the Poppleton series by Cynthia Rylant and the How Do Dinosaurs series by Jane Yolen.
In an interview on the Reading Is Fundamental website, Mr. Teague says drawing comes natural to him, and we agree! His bright, fun illustrations make reading entertaining and exciting. Mr. Teague must like animals, as most of his books feature a variety of pets and farm animals as the main characters. Ike from Dear Mrs. LaRue is actually fashioned after pet dogs Mr. Teague owned!
