Andrew Smith

18 children’s books by the writer and illustrator

Andrew Smith has always wanted to be a writer. After graduating college, he wrote for newspapers and radio stations, but found it wasn't the kind of writing he'd dreamed about doing. Born with an impulse to travel, Smith, the son of an immigrant, bounced around the world and from job to job, before settling down in Southern California. There, he got his first 'real job', as a teacher in an alternative educational program for at-risk teens, married, and moved to a rural mountain location. Smith has now written several award-winning YA novels; Grasshopper Jungle is his seventh and the first to be published in the UK. He lives with his wife, two children, two horses, three dogs, three cats and one irritable lizard named Leo. You can learn more at authorandrewsmith.com and follow him on Twitter: @marburyjack
