Puffin Audiobooks have announced that a new audiobook edition of Danny, the Champion of the World, read by Will Young, will be published next month.
“When we started talking to Will Young about this project we were sure we were going to get a great reading,” said Jeremy Ettinghausen, Penguin’s Digital Publisher. “But when we actually heard him read in the studio and saw his enthusiasm for this book we knew that we were actually going to get something really special.
Young says the project is “very different from anything I have done before” adding “I had a lot of fun reading it and interpreting the different characters in my way. I just hope that it is as much fun to listen to!”
The title will be published on October 25 2007.
