Christopher John has published his first book at age nine. Christopher became interested in writing and drawing from the moment he could hold a pencil. He started writing and illustrating books when he was five. Christopher loves to write and he does it whenever he can. It isn't unusual to see him sitting on the playground at recess with pen in hand. He has been known to recruit other kids to join him in writing funny stories and drawing pictures. "I hope my book inspires kids to be kind, and to love reading as much as I do," says Chris.
