BookD offers a fascinating perspective into the world of publishing. Listen to authors discuss their inspiration behind their books, and hear the story of how these books were transformed from the initial concept. Tune in every other week for conversations with the stars of literature, art, film, music, science and politics. This episode of BookD focuses on Childrens Fiction for audio and talks to David Walliams about his new book 'Billionaire Boy'. This is his third book which allows him to discuss in more detail what it feels like to be an established author in his own right. He also talks about the much loved 'British-ness' of Roald Dahl and C.S Lewis, the importance of a good illustrator, and playing all the parts during his audiobook recording. Stephen Fry and Jim Broadbent also feature as the two readers for Paddington Bear and Michael Morpurgo talks about his charity 'Farms for City Children'.
