The Magical Garden of Claude Monet, by Laurence Anholt
Publisher: Frances Lincoln

This children's audiobook, for Living Paintings Trust, was my first professional narration and it was thrilling to narrate such a beautifully illustrated story with such vivid description. The text was adapted sensitively with braille and raised thermoform images for a partially sighted and blind readership to share with fully sighted family members and was accompanied by a thermoform book of raised paintings by Claude Monet. The specialist Audio Description lending library has a series of Art History / Biographic stories on well- known painters. It was a pleasure to narrate this stunning picture book. What a delightful story to go with the biographical content, full of stunning imagery and word pictures to ignite the imagination of both narrator and listener.

Story narrated by Martine Dunn
Thermoform art works narrated by Tom McGann
Produced and Directed by Liz Davies.
Recorded on location in Berkshire.
