Bonham Carter and Beale read MCB poetry collection

Helena Bonham Carter and Simon Russell Beale are the stellar readers on an audiobook version of A Poem for Every Day of the Year compiled by Allie Esiri (Macmillan Children's Books).

The original hardback was published in September; the audio version will be released on Boxing Day, ready to download in time for the New Year, at £16.99.

The 366 poems in the collection reflect the changing seasons and link to key dates, and are described as "thoughtful, inspiring and empowering."

Bonham Carter said: "I have a different favourite poem every minute, too many favourites to put on this page. There are poems for different stages, different moods, different weathers of one's life..It is a joy to read aloud for the audiobook, and I hope that listening brings a little magic into your day and into your heart."
