May The Audiobook Be With You

Starwarsaudio

I know you expect a coherent, semi-professional blog post about this week’s sponsor, but what I really want to do is grab you by the shoulders and jump up and down while unleashing an endless string of enthusiastic gibberish. Listening Library has stolen my little Star Wars fangirl heart. Last summer, they gave me the opportunity to chat with some of the authors and vocal talent behind their new Star Wars audiobooks (I even got to join them in a reading, putting on my best Wicket voice and rocking a pair of furry ears) and I was blown away by their caliber. Bestselling authors and top-notch narrators have teamed up to bring the original trilogy to young listeners in an exciting new way. Click through to hear an excerpt from the first audiobook in their new series, and don’t miss out on Marc Thompson’s incredible impressions reel. I shared it with some kids a few days ago and they insisted on watching it dozens of times! Listen now, you must.
