‘Sir Lenny, who previously voiced the audiobook of My Name is Leon, added: “Kit’s writing is so vivid and pictorial, when I was doing the audiobook I could see the characters in my head.

Kit is extremely pleased with the adaptation and said at the launch: “Every author who has their work adapted, you hope it is faithful, you hope it turns out how you imagined it and it absolutely has been a dream team. ” Find out more here. Watch a trailer here.
