Christopher Cheng loves books for young people – writing and collecting them.
His books are published in Australia and internationally and he is often heard to say that he has the best job in the world. He believes strongly that every child should be read to, that every child deserves to be able to read, and that reading empowers!
He is co-chair of the International Advisory Board for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), a board member for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content (AFCC), a recipient of the Lady Cutler Award for Children’s Literature and has awards including the Aurealis and the Wilderness Society awards. He has been shortlisted for the CBCA Eve Pownall award.
