About the event

Chris Collin is an award-winning author and lives in the glorious Sunshine Coast region of Queensland, Australia. His quirky books all have a unique feature – they are musical picture books; All Chris’ books come an amazing digital package; an audio-visual narrated version of the book to an incredible orchestral backing score, plus a song for each book, all performed by the author. ‘As an independent publisher, we have the scope to create a world-class musical package with every book. By providing audio and audio-visual versions of the books and a song, kids (and their adults) of all abilities can enjoy our beautiful rhyming stories and songs. What better way is there to get kids reading than combining story with music!’

Chris has produced 5 beautiful books, including the award-winning Funky Chicken series and A Bug Called Doug. His second book in the Funky Chicken series, the hilarious Funky Chicken Chooks in Space, was voted winner of the Speech Pathology Australia Book of the Year. All of his books appear in various Australian state Premier’s Reading Challenge book lists.

Chris’ latest book, The Things you can do with Blue Whale Poo, was shortlisted in the 2021 Speech Pathology Australia Book of the Year Awards. This very funny (and slightly stinky) story, celebrates a little-known fact; blue whale poop plays a crucial contribution to the health of our planet. Chris calls it ‘Poop with purpose!’
