Who Am I, Really?


Andrew McDonald writes books for kids.

He is the author of the bestselling Real Pigeons series and the Hello Twigs series – both illustrated by Ben Wood and published by Hardie Grant Children’s Publishing.

Andrew lives in Naarm/Melbourne and aims to write stories that make kids laugh, gasp and wonder about the world.

His books have been shortlisted for prizes such as the Australian Book Industry Awards, the Readings Children’s Book Prize, and the YABBA, KOALA and KROC children’s choice book awards.

Andrew is a graduate of RMIT’s Professional Writing and Editing diploma and has a Bachelor in Media Studies (Journalism). He prefers writing fiction to non-fiction these days.

Andrew lives with his partner, their two children and a friendly bee that hangs around a lavender bush outside. In his spare time, Andrew enjoys baking his own bread, which he eats down to the last breadcrumb (sorry pigeons).
