Andrew Larsen

Andrew Larsen lives in a neighbourhood in Toronto that has tall trees, old houses and lots of stories. He lives with his wife and two children. Sometimes Andrew goes looking for stories and sometimes stories come looking for him. He has lived in Montreal, Halifax, Ottawa and London, England. Andrew made his first book when he was in kindergarten. He used to dream of being a hockey player or a baseball player. Now he loves to watch his son play baseball. He also loves to read. Andrew is allergic to cats. One day he will write a story about a cat.
