The star-studded lineup behind the new Bluey Book Reads

From Bindi Irwin to the Minogue sisters, Bluey somehow just got better.

Bluey has spent the last five years evolving into the tremendous global sensation it is today.

It’s the children’s show that has put Australian humour and values on the map, and its success shows no signs of slowing any time soon.

Now, the creators behind Bluey have released the first season of Bluey Book Reads.

What is Bluey Book Reads?

Bluey Book Reads is a digital series set to bring the much-loved characters from the show to life. The series has signed on an all-star lineup of guests who will read your favourite Bluey books aloud.

How many Bluey books are there?

In 2024, the number of Bluey books out in the world will reach 70, with many new titles to be released this year.

Where to watch Bluey Book Reads

Catch each new episode on the official Bluey website. Each month, two episodes from the season will be released.

Discover the star-studded line-up of celebrities appearing in season one below, and find out where you can purchase the books.

Kylie and Dannii Minogue

The Minogue sisters were the first celebrities to lend their voices to the characters of Bluey and Bingo in the book, Mini Bluey. The first read of the series featuring the Aussie singers was released on February 12.

In a statement, Kylie expressed her appreciation for the opportunity to be a part of the project.

“Bluey is an Aussie icon so when I was asked if I’d like to read Mini Bluey with my sister, it was an easy YES!” said Kylie.

“It reminded me so much of being kids growing up in Australia.  It’s a funny, sweet and heart-warming tale of being yourself and encouraging others to do the same.”

Bindi Irwin

In what might possibly be one of the best collaborations in Australian literary history, wildlife conservationist Bindi Irwin narrates The Creek. Naturally, this crossover takes place in the bush with Bluey exploring a creek.

Bindi also featured in a social post, introducing her followers to a real-life broad shelled turtle, like the ones Bluey readers are introduced to in the book.

The Creek is available to view now on the official Bluey website.

Tom Daley

Narrating the Bluey book Barky Boats, is British Olympian Tom Daley.

Tom competed at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and won two gold medals. One in the 10-metre synchronised event with Max Brick and another as an individual diver.

After taking home bronze in the 2012 Olympic Games, he took up TV hosting where he gained recognition for his show, Splash!

Tom’s book read is the next to be released on March 11.

Romesh Ranganathan

English comedian, actor and presenter Romesh Ranganathan is set to bring fans the special Easter edition of Bluey.

Suranne Jones

Best known for her roles in Vigil and Doctor Foster, Suranne Jones is an English actress and producer.

Eva’s book read is set to be released on May 3.

Jordan Fisher
