Chrissie Krebs is an Author/Illustrator of children’s picture books.


Her books include:  This Is A Circle, There Is Something Weird In Santa’s Beard (Penguin Random House) and Pig In A Wig (Omnibus Scholastic). She has also been lucky enough to illustrate for the exceptionally talented author Michael Gerard Bauer, which resulted in the hilarious picture book Rodney Loses It! (Scholastic). Rodney Loses It! went on to win the 2018 CBCA Book of the Year in the Early Childhood category, as well as the Speech Pathology Book of the Year for 3 – 5 year olds.


Chrissie would love to continue writing and illustrating books for children and is currently interested in expanding her genre to junior fiction chapter books.

Other Bits & Pieces



Nat awesome (ish) rap was based on the brilliant book Piranhas Don't Eat Bananas by Aaron Blabey. If you want to see it done properly, then grab yourself a copy and try not to sing Nat's song in your head while you're reading. (P..p..pirahnas, don't eat b, b, bananas!)


Also - apologies to Mr Blabey. We promise we won't let Nat sing ANY more of your books!


To illustrator Marianne Khoo (and her assistant Max) for designing the One More Page podcast logo and other associated images.
