English author, Neil Gaiman, is known for writing a vast array of books from graphic novels to children’s books, from short stories to collaborations with the late-great Terry Pratchett. Readers may also know Neil Gaiman for his soothing voice when he reads the likes of Lewis Carroll’s The Jabberwocky in no other than a tulgey wood for a charitable cause. Which is why, when we saw that Gaiman had shared some free online readings of his works, we were over the moon.
During this difficult time, more and more people are abiding to rules of social distancing so content that can be easily accessed is vital for staying entertained. Neil Gaiman is the next in a series of authors and literary figures to share content, from videos of book readings to live literary Q&As.
Fans of Neil Gaiman can head to this website now and watch videos of the author himself reading The Graveyard book. The book is broken into eight, chapter videos followed by five Q&A videos from the book’s tour.
That’s not all though. There are also videos of Neil Gaiman and friends reading another of his works, Coraline. The videos which are again broken up into chapters, this time thirteen, are read by an array of different readers including; Lemony Snickett, Neil Shusterman, R.L. Stine, and Cassie Clare.
We’ve shared the first of each video in the book series in this blog but to finish watching, head to ‘Mouse Circus’ – the official Neil Gaiman website for Younger Readers which can be accessed here.
