Having already voiced the audiobooks for Cressida Cowell’s How to Train Your Dragon series, David Tennant will also be recording the audiobook for the author’s latest story.
Tennant will read the audio version of The Wizard of Once, which will be released in the UK on September 19th, the same day as the hardback and e-book versions.
The US edition will be released on October 3rd, and Tennant will also be voicing the audiobook.
Speaking about Tennant’s involvement, Cowell said: “I’ve been immensely lucky to have David Tennant interpreting my books for over a decade, and I’m absolutely thrilled that he’s going to be reading The Wizards of Once. Having your story brought to life by an actor of his skill and genius is a special kind of magic.
“David’s incredible talent has introduced thousands of families to How to Train Your Dragon.”
She added: “A large number of children and parents have told me that they were so gripped by listening to his audio version on long car journeys that they had to stay in the car even after they reached their destination, in order to hear the end of the story.”
