While growing up, Louise Bradford spent every summer camping around Lake Huron and Lake Superior near Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. These days, when she’s not writing, you’ll find her exploring beautiful British Columbia.

Louise is the proud author of Wade’s Wiggly Antlers, published by Kids Can Press, and translated into French by Éditions Scholastic. In 2019, Wade’s Wiggly Antlers and Eustache perd son panache were offered in McDonald’s Canada Happy Meals to promote literacy.

“Louise Bradford’s appealing story is accompanied by Christine Battuz’s amusing illustrations that incorporate a variety of techniques including pattern, shape, shadow and colour. These pictures draw the reader in to closely examine the many delightful features of each page. The partnering of the text and the art adds humour and enhances the characterization of Wade and his friends. Bradford’s text may be slightly challenging for the very early reader, but the richness of the words and sentences adds to the charm of the story. This also makes it a great read-aloud.” CM Magazine: Review of Books


“Did you know that, pound for pound, the moose is the leanest ruminant on Earth? It’s true. Moose are very in tune with their natural surroundings.”
