Hugh Bonneville voices audiobook for Nosy Crow coronavirus title

"Paddington" and "Downton Abbey" star Hugh Bonneville has voiced the free audiobook for Nosy Crow's recently released children's e-book about coronavirus. 

The e-book was released on 6th April, covering what the coronavirus is and the measures taken to control it. It was written by the staff at Nosy Crow, with expert input from Professor Graham Medley. 

According to Nosy Crow, the e-book was accessed over 100,000 times on the Nosy Crow website in the first 24 hours and has been downloaded over 650,000 times since.

The audiobook can now be listened to for free on Soundcloud, or downloaded as an audio-enhanced iBook edition. It will be available through Audible and Amazon from Thursday April 23rd. 

Kate Wilson, m.d. of Nosy Crow, said: "we have just been overwhelmed with the response to our book. As a relatively small, independent publisher we have just never seen this level of activity on our website or through our social media channels."
