The audio adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book won three awards at the US Audie Awards, which recognise achievements in audiobooks.
The recording, produced by HarperCollins Audio and Creative Content, features a cast including Derek Jacobi, Miriam Margoyles, Emilia Fox, Lenny Henry and Gaiman himself. It was given the awards for best children's title ages 8-12, best multi-voiced performance, and the distinguished achievement in production award. It was also nominated for the audiobook of the year award, but lost out to Mandela: An Audio History, produced by the Highbridge Company.
Other British titles seeing success at the awards yesterday (28th May) include actor Alan Cumming's Not My Father's Son (Canongate), which won best autobiography or memoir and narration by the author awards, and Robert Galbraith's The Silkworm (Hachette Audio), which won in the best mystery category.
The Audies are managed by AudioFile magazine, and sponsored by the Audio Publishers Association. 2015 was the 20th edition of the awards. The full list of winners can be seen on the AudioFile website.
