Daily update …free audiobooks

We hope you are all ok and making sure you are following the lockdown procedures which will help our NHS stay open and save lives.

Just another idea to keep you occupied:

Comedian and children’s author David Walliams is releasing a free children’s audio book daily for the next 30 days, he announced on Twitter yesterday. 

He tweeted: “I am about to call in to @ZoeTheBall‘s @BBCRadio2 show to talk about the free ‘World’s Worst Children’ audiobooks I am posting daily.”

The first story is already available for download on Walliams’ website. Called ‘The Terrible Triplets’, it’s part of his book ‘The World’s Worst Children 3’, a collation of different stories that was released in 2018.

The audio book extracts will be released daily at 11am, and will be selected from his ‘World’s Worst Children’ book series.

Enjoy and stay safe.
