Former Corrie actress voices Grantham author's book
A famous actress and TV personality has been cast to voice the audio book of ‘The Day Granny’s Knickers Blew Away,’ written by Grantham author Grant Koper.
Loose Women and former Coronation Street Star, Denise Welch, took to the recording studio last week to help bring the popular children’s book to life.
Author Grant Koper, who used to attend St Mary’s Primary School and now lives in South London as an actor and performer, said: “I was commissioned to write a play to encourage more children to engage with the theatre. The play featured lots of funny stories with The Day Granny’s Knickers Blew Away being one of the favourites and so we turned it into a book.”
Since being published in 2016, the book, which tells the story of how Granny Moon’s knickers blow off the washing line and become part of an exciting adventure, has continued to enthral young readers.
Grant has read to over 20,000 schoolchildren since embarking on his UK wide tour in February to promote the book.
Denise said: “I was delighted to provide my voice. Audio books are so important for children who can’t read and it’s a joy to be asked to bring these humorous characters to life.”
Grant added: “With a warm and friendly voice, I was over the moon to hear Denise could take time out of her busy schedule to provide her voice for my book!”
