Die personeel by Pan Macmillan (uitgewers) het die volgende huldeblyk aan hom gebring:
“Staff at Pan Macmillan have had the pleasure and privilege of working with Chris since 2004 when we published his memoir Shirley, Goodness & Mercy. The warmth and humour of his childhood memories merely touched the essence of this larger-than-life man who filled our office with his laughter and his wit. It has been a joy working with Chris and getting to know him and his family.”
Chris het onder andere die kinderboek Ouma Ruby’s Secret geskryf wat al in 11 amptelike tale gepubliseer is en die erns van geletterdheid beklemtoon het.
Rus in vrede Chris.
