Meryl Streep is lending her voice to a new audiobook version of E B White’s children’s classic Charlotte’s Web.
It will be the first new audiobook edition of the classic story since the author’s own narration, recorded nearly 50 years ago.
Streep will be joined by an ensemble cast of more than 20 veteran audiobook narrators including January LaVoy as Charlotte, Kirby Heyborne as Wilbur and MacLeod Andrews as Templeton, among others.
Charlotte’s Web, which was originally published in 1952, chronicles the story of a livestock pig named Wilbur and his friendship with a barn spider named Charlotte.
The audiobook version of Charlotte’s Web will be available to download on 29th October.
