Andrew Larsen

andrew larsen

As a young boy, Andrew Larsen dreamed of being a hockey player. His first job was delivering newspapers to the houses in his neighborhood. He has had many other jobs over the years but, once he started a family, Andrew discovered his true calling: he became a stay-at-home dad and started writing stories.

Andrew lives in a neighborhood 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.
Andrew’s books include A Squiggly Story, See You Next Year, In the Tree House and The Imaginary Garden. He has just released Dingus, his first middle-grade novel.

Andrew still dreams of being a hockey player.
