At Redlands College, Harrison talked to the students and signed copies of his books.

In the book, Harrison speaks of his struggle to find his own voice via this picture book by Brisbane-based Wombat Books.

Publicity coordinator of Wombat Books Emily Lighezzolo said many people didn’t equate the platinum-selling superstar with the boy who stuttered in his  younger years.

“Behind his sweet voice is the story of bullying and torment,” she said.

“When I was a kid, I was often bullied because of my stutter. That feeling when I first discovered I could sing without stuttering will never leave me,” Harrison said.

“Being a kid is tough and overcoming challenges can be hard, but when you find what makes you special, you can do almost anything.”

The hard cover book is available for $24.99 and is suited to children aged four to eight years.
