Burly and Grum – The Video!

Howdy!

Well, that was a fun and daunting experience. What was, you ask? Why, the reading out of Kate Tenbeth’s Burly and Grum and The Tiger’s Tale at Tiny Tigers (part of Save Wild Tigers) at London St. Pancras station.

We were expecting a few 5-8 year olds. What we got was quite a few 3 to 5 year olds! So a little younger than expected, so I had to ad lib on occasion, but still good fun and the majority of the kids’ attentions were held for the full 30 minutes of reading!

“Is there a video of this event?”

Well, yes. Yes there is.

“Can I see it?”

Yes, yes you can.

“Well…?”

Ok, ok, here it is. Just… sorry to you if you’re Scottish, have Scottish people in your family, know Scottish people, have ever been to Scotland or have watched Billy Connolly:

Cheers,

Pat

Burly and Grum – Live!

Hiya!

This weekend is going to be fun. For the first time I’m taking my voice overs away from the studio mic and in front of an audience!

Across the weekend at St Pancras in London is an event called Tiny Tigers: a fun weekend of activities for children of all ages and their families, highlighting the plight of the wild tiger and raising funds to ensure that they are protected for future generations. To paraphrase (a.k.a. directly rip) from their web site.

It’s run by the Save Wild Tigers charity and should be great fun!

Part of the activities includes the reading of a special Burly and Grum story written for the charity. Who’s reading? Why, its author Kate Tenbeth and… me! Yep. I’m quite excited 🙂

The story’s called Burly and Grum and the Tiger’s Tale and you can download it here for a mere 99p.

If you happen to be free this weekend, we’ll be doing the reading at 3:30pm on Saturday so would love for your and your family to come and support us and the Save Wild Tigers charity.

It’ll be tastier than crispy fried earwigs. Hope to see you then!

Burly and Grums’ Halloween Adventure – Audio Book!

Hellooooooo!

Well, the spooky season continues today with the release of a free short story for children: Burly and Grum’s Halloween Adventure.

This is part of the fantastic series of Burly and Grum books by Kate Tenbeth, which revolve around their many adventures and mishaps. A cast of characters assist them through their adventures.

Burly and Grum’s Halloween Adventure sees them teaming up with their friend Max to go trick or treating for the first time… and things don’t quite turn out how they were expecting!

There’s a book and an audio book version for you to read/listen to. I recommend it – it’s really good fun. 🙂

What’s Your Involvement?

I am the voice of the audio book! Yep, it’s my first foray into the world of audio books (recording/editing in my studio), and I hope you enjoy what I’ve come up with!

How Can I Listen?

Either stream it here using the player below, or click on the “Download” button on the player to grab a copy to listen to where and whenever:

Is There A Non-Audio Book Version?

Sure is! You can read via the Burly and Grum web site or the Burly and Grum Facebook Page, both of which will let you find out more about Kate, the characters and browse through the existing catalogue of stories.

Let me know what you think!

Bye for noooooooooooooooooooooowwww,

Pat
