Chris Smith

Chris Smith is the co-author of the best-selling, award-winning Kid Normal series with his friend Greg James. The books, which tell the story of an ordinary boy accidentally thrust into a chaotic world of secret superheroes, have been translated into more than 20 languages and are enjoyed by children all over the world. Chis grew up in leafy Northamptonshire and now lives in not-as-leafy north London with his wife, son and a cat called Mabel who can talk. If you listen very carefully to the George Michael song ‘Outside’ you can hear a sample of Chris reading the news.
