Marcus MacGregor

Author Marcus MacGregorabout this book: Mark Banana is a little boy with an EPIC IMAGINATION!

Sometimes he is a prince, sometimes he is a superhero. Almost always he needs a cape.

At Mark's request, his loving mother sews him a new red cape. But when it does not turn out the way Mark had expected, he is torn between his disappointment, his concern for his mother's feelings, and his irrepressible need to pretend!


• 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
I wrote Mark Banana and the New Red Cape about fourteen years ago as a present for my mother, with no plans to publish it. However, it was so much fun to write that it has played on my imagination ever since. When my own kids were learning to read, I was surprised by how few stories there are that bridge the gap between picture books and chapter books. Mark Banana just seemed like the perfect vehicle to meet this need and have some fun in the process!

• 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.
