A deliciously creepy story such as The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor needs equally brilliant narrators, and we’re so excited to share the news that Andrew Scott and Asa Butterfield will be taking on the roles of young and grown-up Eddie for the audiobook.


Scott is a stage, film & TV actor and is well-known for his sinister portrayal of Moriarty in BBC’s Sherlock. Since then, he has appeared in films such as Pride, Spectre and Denial. Butterfield has been acting since the age of eight, starring in The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, Hugo and The Space Between Us.


Here’s a sneak peek at what you can expect from the audio of this eagerly awaited debut, published in the US by Crown tomorrow, and in the UK by Michael Joseph this Thursday:
