Having worked for many years selling books before turning his hand to writing them, Mark is now firmly established on the children's book scene with an ever-growing portfolio of picture books. From quirky to lyrical, Mark has a real talent for capturing the familiar moments in children's everyday lives with warmth and humour.
The creator of several best-selling series, his books have been translated into over 14 different languages and shortlisted for a range of prizes. Recent titles include We're All Works of Art (Pavilion), The Naughty Naughty Baddies (Bloomsbury), The Littlest Things Give the Loveliest Hugs (Orchard), and Captain McGrew Wants You for his Crew (Bloomsbury).
Mark is influenced by all things wonderful and one day hopes to borrow Max's boat and go and live with the wild things... until then he resides in Bristol.
