Serafina and the Black Cloak

Middle Grade Audiobook


Campbell_C_DYes, there’s a Serafina audiobook! It was produced by Penguin Random House for the Listening Library. It’s downloadable from,, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, and other sites where audiobooks are sold. It’s also available as a CD set.

Reading a book is great, but there’s nothing quite like listening to a story well told. And Serafina and the Black Cloak was specifically written to be narrated outloud. The best part is that the¬†audiobook has been narrated by none other than the estimable Cassandra Campbell, one of the most popular and highly decorated voice talents in the business. Whether you listen to audiobooks in your car or while you’re working on something else, you’re going to love taking Serafina’s journey through Cassandra Campbell’s lovely voice.

Cassandra has narrated more than 400 audiobooks and has directed nearly twice that many. She has won many awards, including Best Audio Book of the Year for her ensemble work on The Help by Kathryn Stockett.

About audiobook narrating, Cassandra says, “I love the opportunity to tell a story. As an actor, it’s really being part of a tradition that goes all the way back to the Homeric epic.” For Cassandra, finding the author’s voice, cadences, and rhythms are the first challenges she faces when preparing to narrate. She’s learned “to listen internally to the book” before speaking it out loud. “And then, after that, it’s so much fun.”

The audiobook adventure continues with Book 2 in the series: The Serafina and the Twisted Staff audiobook is now available for download and as a CD set!
