Floodland – author reading

There are a lot of schools who read Floodland, especially in years 5 and 6 – and with the current situation, I know there are some of you who are halfway through the book, but who, without sufficient copies for every pupil, are unable to finish from home.

So I’ll be recording the book, chapter by chapter, and uploading the videos here, for you to watch at your leisure. Please note I’m not an actor or professional audiobook reader, and I’m doing the readings in one take to be as quick as possible getting them online, so please forgive a few mistakes 🙂

Teachers! If you’re not already aware, there is a wonderful FREE set of teaching resources for the book available from the excellent people at CLPE: and it’s available here.

Be safe, everyone, and read lots of books.

Once upon a time there used to be a proper recording of Floodland, but sadly it seems to be unavailable in the UK now. It is still available in the US, however, and you can get it as a digital audiobook here.

The book itself is still in print and you can support your local bookshop by buying it here, in the UK. Or here, in the US.
