Sophie Thompson to narrate The Wild Before

I am over the moon to announce that the fabulous Sophie Thompson will be recording The Wild Before!

The unabridged audiobook of The Wild Before will be available as a digital download at £21.99, releasing on 2 December 2021.

I am such an admirer of Sophie’s work on both stage and screen. I can’t wait to hear such an accomplished and versatile actor bring the animals of Dandelion Hill to life – and just in time for Christmas too, what a treat!

Sophie said: “It’s been my pleasure to give Little Hare and his animal friends a voice and to bring their wild community to life. The Wild Before is a critically important story about climate change, friendship and hope for young children and I really hope that families enjoy listening to it together.”
