Harry Potter Narrator to Voice Ghost Hawk

Ghost Hawk Book CoverI didn’t read the Harry Potter books, I listened to them on CD. And what made that experience particularly enjoyable was the voice work of narrator Jim Dale. Dale won two Grammy Awards for bringing to life J.K. Rowling’s words and has won an impressive 10 Audie Awards for his work. And now Jim Dale has been tapped to voice Susan Cooper’s Ghost Hawk for Simon & Schuster Audio. Cooper’s novel will be released on August 27, 2013.
 
In addition to his Grammy and Audie wins, Dale has been nominated for five Tony Awards, four Drama Desk Awards, and four New York Critics Awards. He won a Tony for his performance in Barnum. “I’m thrilled to lend my voice to Susan’s beautiful story,” said Dale. “It’s a true pleasure to bring her characters to life.”
 
Added author Cooper, “There are other wonderful actors, but none of them has Jim Dale’s skill and versatility in the medium of audio. I’m delighted he wanted to read Ghost Hawk.”
 
Newbery Medal winner Cooper’s resume includes The Dark is Rising books, King of Shadows, Green Boy, and Victory.
 
“We’re thrilled to have Jim Dale as the voice behind Ghost Hawk,” stated Chris Lynch, President & Publisher of Simon & Schuster Audio. “He is one of the finest audiobook narrators ever. Pairing him with Susan Cooper’s extraordinary new novel will make for an unforgettable listening experience.
