Listen: Olivia Colman reads The Tale of Peter Rabbit

Olivia Colman is one of a host of stars who have read some of Beatrix Potter’s classic stories for a new audiobook.

David Harewood, David Tennant, Hugh Bonneville, Lily James,  Joanna Lumley, Robert Webb and Gemma Whelan are also narrating the adventures of Peter Rabbit and his friends.

Another cast member, Suranne Jones, said: “I was so thrilled to be asked to read The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck as I was a huge Beatrix Potter fan as a young girl and my son was gifted the whole Peter Rabbit library when he was born, too.

“The night before I went to record the story, we all read it together, which was incredibly sweet. I’m glad the characters have been committed to audio so many more families can share in their adventures.”

This new collection will be released on September 17 in audio download and physical CD.
