Marcus MacGregorabout this book: The little boy with the EPIC IMAGINATION is BACK!
Sometimes he is a cowboy, sometimes an adventurer. Usually, he needs a bullwhip.
When Mark's mother makes him a whip out of some old rawhide shoelaces, Mark couldn't be happier. That is, until the day he spies a REAL bullwhip at the mall. With his birthday money he purchases his dream, but alas - some dreams are too good to last...
The perfect series for read-aloud storytime, and a great confidence builder for developing readers.
• Author Bio
Hi! I'm Marcus MacGregor, author of the Mark Banana series. As a dad and former teacher, I've always been grateful for stories written primarily to delight and entertain. They are like rays of sunshine that lift moods, spirits, and hopes.
Enter Mark Banana. His adventures (and misadventures) are based loosely on my own childhood, which thanks to my loving parents was a very happy one.
May the sweetness, the humor, and the surprise twists of Mark Banana deepen your childrens' love of life and literature - and may they put a smile on your face as well!
• Book Inspiration
Mark Banana and the Broken Bullwhip is ripped straight from my actual childhood. I was absolutely obsessed with bullwhips, and always trying to find one that would be strong enough to swing from. Some of my happiest memories are of hot summer days, practicing my bullwhippery and just imagining that I was big and brave - a real man. I think this particular book is one that will resonate with any kid who dreams of being cool, confident, and capable. And I think there are a lot of mothers out there who will just be smiling and nodding and recognizing their own kids in Mark Banana - and that kind of reaction is just so rewarding for a children's author.
• Character Inspiration
Mark is me, and his world was essentially my world growing up - though in the interests of good storytelling, I have taken great liberties with actual history. Other characters are based loosely upon the wonderful people I was blessed to know, and who made my childhood rich and full.
