Andrea Beck


Celebrated author / illustrator Andrea Beck has produced 17 picture books for children. She is perhaps best known for her Elliot Moose picture book series, beloved by children and parents alike, and which spun off into a children’s television show that aired for over 15 years, still a Youtube fav. She followed Elliot with a trilogy featuring her favourite goofy pooch, “Pierre Le Poof!” and more recently with, “Goodnight, Canada” and “Good Morning, Canada” both instant best sellers.  Andrea is a fun and interactive presenter who shares stories of where her ideas came from and shows young artists a tip or two at her easel. Andrea is always a hit with the primary crowd!

Andrea was born in Montreal, and currently lives in Unionville, ON.
