Personal Info

General

Physical Description

Logan describes himself with blue eyes, average height, average build. He has blondish brown curly hair. He looks like his mother. He has a southern accent. Mary Anne says that he looked exactly like Cam Geary.

Personality Traits

He is funny and understanding. A take-charge kind of guy, sometimes even bullheaded, the opposite of Mary Anne. Not at all jockish. Sometimes he has a hard time being in a room full of girls. He is a big Mets fan. He's not a morning person and is always hungry. Mary Anne states that he's a careful shopper when he's in the mood in The Secret Life of Mary Anne Spier. Normally he hates to shop like in Mary Anne Saves the Day.

Mary Anne Spier calls him levelheaded in Logan Likes Mary Anne!.

Childhood Experiences

He used to live in Louisville, Kentucky. He moved to Stoneybrook at the beginning of eighth grade. He didn't want to move. He and his cousin Lewis Bruno used to spend their summers on a horse farm outside of Louisville.

He had to have six stitches in his lip after trying to do chin ups in the bathroom in Logan Likes Mary Anne!.

Biography

At Camp Mohawk, Logan earns a Hiawatha badge which means that he can do any water sport. In Book #109 Mary Anne to the Rescue, Logan's father decides that he should go to his old boarding school, Conant Academy, but with Mary Anne's help, Logan is able to persuade him not to make him go.

In Mary Anne and the Search for Tigger he was in danger of being kicked off the baseball team. He was acting off which made Mary Anne upset. He said that the coach was expecting more out of him and started to make mistakes because of that. Logan was getting nervous.

Logan mentions that one time he went camping with his family and got lost for ten minutes and freaked out in Logan's Story.

He skis over to the Pike house to bring Mary Anne Spier food when she and Mallory were baby-sitting. They didn't have enough to get through the storm.

Jessi notes that Logan’s audition had not gone too well in Starring the Baby-sitters Club!.  He spoke his lines in a loud, flat monotone, barely pausing at commas or periods.  He seemed to have forgotten the purpose of punctuation.  His singing had not been much better.  He could carry a tune okay, but that was about all.  He kept messing up the words to “Wendy”.  Instead of singing, “We have a mother! At last we have a mother!” he sang “We have another! At least we have another!” And for “Wendy’s waiting at the door, we won’t be lonely anymore,” he sang “Wind is wading on the floor, we won’t be lovely anymore.” He ends up getting the part of a pirate and ends up getting kicked out of the play after the director, Mr. Cheney, saw him goofing off during rehearsals. When he shouts mutiny he gets kicked off the play only to rejoin later on probation.

Baby-sitting and Club Experiences

Logan sits for his siblings and used to sit for Louisville neighbors, even babies. He goes on his first BSC job with Mary Anne to sit for Jackie Rodowsky.

He got teased by friends about belonging to the club.

He can't replace Dawn in Dawn's Big Move as a regular member because his football practice is becoming really intense. He briefly quits the BSC because of his sports schedule. Logan can stay out to ten-thirty on weeknights, maybe midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
