Mark Buehner – Illustrator

His sisters claim that Mark Buehner learned to walk by holding a pencil. Perhaps that is why he loved drawing, even at an early age. His imagination bloomed with creative play, and the joyousness of his childhood influences his whimsical style today. He is the illustrator of many children’s picture books, including, The Adventures of Taxi Dog, My Monster Mama Loves Me So, Harvey Potter’s Balloon Farm, and My Life with the Wave. His work has garnered medals from the Society of Illustrators, as well as library and bookseller awards and have been featured on Reading Rainbow and Storytime on PBS.

More about “Snowmen at Halloween”

The snowmen are getting their Halloween costumes ready for the latest picture book in this New York Times bestselling series.

Snowmen at HalloweenHave you ever built a snowman and discovered the next day that his grin has gotten a little crooked, or his tree-branch arms have moved? And you’ve wondered . . . what do snowmen do when we’re not watching?

After an early snowfall, a few kids build some snowmen before going trick-or-treating. And when the kids go off to bed, the snowmen have their own Halloween festival! There’s candy and apple-bobbing and costume contests and all sorts of autumn activities. When the kids wake up the next morning, the snowmen are gone… but they’ve left a very special message behind.


Snowmen at Halloween is available for pre-order on Amazon!
