New CD release from British Museum National Sound Archive...

From the collection of the Sound Archive and new recordings made specially, this latest audio CD features ten favourite children's writers reading extracts from their own books. Spanning 25 years of the great tradition of children's writing in Britain, their work reflects changing fashions and themes and yet shares a common bond where the text comes alive on the page and stimulates the imagination of the reader. This CD gives an added dimension, as it features the actual voices of authors themselves and their interpretation of the written words. A booklet is included which explains the history and background to each extract.
