First Appearance

Kristy's Great Idea

Andrew Brewer is a minor character and BSC charge in The Baby Sitters Club books by Ann M. Martin and a more prominent character in the Baby-Sitters Little Sister series. He is 4-5 years old and Kristy Thomas' stepbrother and Karen Brewer's sister. He is a member of both the Engle Family and Brewer/Thomas Family.


Andrew is shy and quiet and doesn't talk much at all. Andrew gets scared easily and can't take much of Karen's stories. He has traveled quite a bit for someone of his age. He went on a cruise to Disney World in Super Special #1 Baby-sitters on Board! and he went to Shadow Lake in Super Special #8 Baby-sitters at Shadow Lake. Andrew is close with his family but his parents' divorce upsets him, as revealed in #1 Kristy's Great Idea. Andrew sometimes has his thumb in his mouth, such as in #6 Kristy's Big Day.

A fair bit of Karen's stories involve Andrew. For example, in Book #7 Claudia and Mean Janine, Karen made up a story that at a certain time of day, Andrew would turn into a monster. Also, in #12 Claudia and the New Girl, Karen tried to convince people that Andrew was going to grow hair all over his body.

Andrew says 'Yup' to everything in #1 Kristy's Great Idea, probably because he was nervous or shy. He doesn't like being the center of attention. Andrew didn't want to be the 'Flower Boy' in the wedding in Kristy's Big Day. Andrew gets embarrassed easily. He is usually the bellhop or the sailor in Let's All Come In. He likes swimming in the lake. He likes peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. He used to take naps.
