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.

PreSchool-Grade 3-Wendell and Floyd show Mona, the new girl in school, the Lost and Found, hoping to help her find her lucky hat. When she disappears into the large box, the boys follow her and together they explore an underground world filled with misplaced objects ranging from baby dolls to pirate treasures. As they wander, they note several times that "you can't get lost in the Lost and Found." When they finally reach the hat room, Mona realizes that the missing item was in her purse all along. The boys each pick out a lucky hat for themselves, and the children return to school. Though the idea of a mysterious world of Lost and Found is intriguing, this book has less humor and excitement than readers have come to expect from Teague. His vivid acrylic paintings fill the pages with color, but the comic possibilities are never fully explored. The framework of the story is similar to The Secret Shortcut (Scholastic, 1996), which also features Wendell and Floyd, but the adventure here is less satisfying. There are assorted odd images scattered throughout the pages, but the scenes aren't as vivid and surprising, and the story lacks the crispness of the earlier title. Teague's eye-catching illustrations and his knack for capturing the imaginative possibilities of childhood are still engaging enough, but it is hard not to wish that Wendell and Floyd's next adventure will be a bit more lively.
