Author and Illustrator

Chryseis Knight is an enthusiastic girl who learned how to read at age one.
Reading is her love.
She wrote The Great Big Lion when she was three years old.
Chryseis is now an emerging author and illustrator, with the hope that she can inspire children all around the world to embrace the magic in books.

Always complete what you start.



Chryseis initially wrote this story in her notebook. She then shared the story with her family.

With the help of her mother, they went on to illustrate her book.



Chryseis’ story gives us an insight to the innocence of her experiences, emotions and thoughts. It inspires us to reflect on relationships through the lens of a child, whether intentional or otherwise, around the importance of being inclusive, embracing differences and accepting diversity.



The handwritten font used in this book is relatable to children and is aimed at creating interest in reading. The font sizes were selected to bring about an engaging story-telling experience with a touch of fun.

If you cant find me I am probably burried in a book.

Originally published as a board book, The Great Big Lion's roar is perfect for bedtime stories.

This is an easy read that combines art and educational play through patterns, counting & opposites, all wrapped in a cute "adventure time" for your little ones.

If you have school children fascinated with nature & the animal kingdom and you are not keen on getting another lion king book, the Great Big Lion is the best e-book for children readers. 

I would love to hear from you!
