Benedict Cumberbatch - Benedict Cumberbatch Voices The Snowman Audio Sequel

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch has narrated an audio version of the sequel to Raymond Briggs' popular children's classic The Snowman.

The Sherlock star recorded the e-book adaptation of The Snowman and the Snowdog, a Tv follow-up to Briggs' Oscar-nominated 1982 animated short film.

The Snowman and the Snowdog, written and directed by Hilary Audus, will be wordless like the original, but the e-book will feature a unique narration by Cumberbatch.

The actor says, "The magic of The Snowman is universal for every generation; as is the thrill of a first encounter with snow. And in this new story, to bring (The Snowman and) the Snowdog to life for new young readers was a joy. I hope it will become as much of a Christmas tradition as the beautiful original was when I was a boy."

The Snowman and the Snowdog will be screened in the U.K. on Christmas Eve (24Dec12), and the audio e-book will be released on 29 December (12).
