Mark Sperring

Mark has worked for many years as a bookseller before turning his hand to writing. He is now an exciting new star on the picture book scene with several highly acclaimed titles under his belt including Green (Meadowside), The Sunflower Sword (Andersen Press) and Captain Buckleboots on the Naughty Step (Puffin).

More titles follow this year including: The Shape of My Heart (Bloomsbury), Dino Baby (Bloomsbury), Mabel and Me (Harper Collins) and How Many Sleeps Until Christmas? (Puffin). From quirky to lyrical, Mark has a real talent for capturing the familiar moments in children's everyday lives with warmth and humour.

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.
