Dawn French will narrate an audiobook edition of Giles Andreae’s I Love My… picture books for Bolinda, the first time any of the series will be produced in audio.
Nicki Powell, Bolinda’s senior rights and content executive, acquired world English language audio rights for the I Love My… Collection from Emily Talbot at United Agents. The audiobook will be published on 1st August, combining the original and award-winning title, I Love My Mummy (Orchard), with 11 additional stories.
French said: “It was such a joy to read Giles Andreae's incredibly sweet and funny stories. I hope families have as much fun listening as I did recording them.”
Andreae added: “I am delighted that Dawn French is narrating our I Love My… series of books. The two qualities that I have tried to imbue all the books with are heart and humour and I can think of no better two words that sum up Dawn herself.”
Bolinda publishes more than 100 audiobooks each month and is the creator of BorrowBox, the UK’s leading e-book and audiobook download solution in public libraries.
