  2. 2. About the author  I like to play football but I only like to throw it and catch it. I like to roller skate. I like school, I like to read and I like to spell. I do not like tomatoes or onions. I like Mac & cheese, pizza, and grilled cheese. I’m choosing this animal because nobody really knows about hedgehogs, nobody really cares about hedgehogs so that’s why I picked it.
