Mark Teague developed his writing and painting talents without formal training but with a healthy dose of imagination. Each of Teague's books starts as "notebooks full of sketches and scribbles, strange little drawings, and phrases that seem mostly cryptic that suddenly come together," he explains. His books tackle everything from first graders coping with life on Mars to Shakespearean characters coping with life on earth. Mischievous dinosaurs, witty dogs, nightmare haircuts, messy rooms, closet monsters - all find their way into Teague's wildly inventive books. Teague has also collaborated with many critically acclaimed authors, including Jane Yolen, Audrey Wood, and Cynthia Rylant. He lives in upstate New York with his wife and two daughters.

Another surreal adventure for Elmo, hero of Moog-Moog, Space Barber (1990). Stuck with a book-report book he's sure he won't enjoy--Frog Medicine--Elmo doesn't even open it. Suddenly, the assignment's due: ``I'll just make up something,'' he decides, but draws a blank. Meanwhile, the froggie details that have been invading Teague's art burst forth on Elmo's feet, now green and webbed. After a visit to the book's author, Dr. Galoof, a frog whose desk and bookcase of medical tomes sit among reeds and lily pads, elicits solid advice (``Just do your homework...You really should read more''), Elmo settles down, finds he enjoys the book after all, and returns to normal--even his feet. Offbeat and wryly amusing, but it's the illustrations that command attention: the solid, hard-edged forms are alive with energy, with even skyscrapers leaning purposefully; Elmo's cat acts as a constant observer, by turns anxious, bored, or debonair; every scene is bathed in curiously pure light, with plenty of clever, funny details to discover.
