The audio book version of The Beasts of Clawstone Castle is narrated by David, with an RP accent and in places an American one as well.  It was released on May 5, 2005 but if you pick up a copy make sure it is the UK version, the US audio book is narrated by Jenny Sterlin.

The producer of the recording was Tamsin Collinson, who also produced Quite Ugly One Morning, which David also reads.

". . . David Tennant's reading of The Beasts of Clawstone Castle is the one to get. Like most of Britain, I am in love with the new Doctor Who, but he is even better as a reader than as an actor, and shares Miranda Richardson's insane glee in realising eccentric characters. Eva Ibbotson's thespian ghosts, determined to rescue the snow-white cattle of a crumbling Northern castle by staging dramatic hauntings for tourists, get the full treatment, with dreamy, spooky music to calm things down in between. Especially good at mad, posh voices, Tennant renders Rolf, the rat-gnawed aristocratic spook, so well that my children were begging to go back into the hot car to hear what happened next." - The Independent - August 7, 2005 - Amanda Craig
