Tom Hardy reads a bedtime story, and yes, You Must Bring a Hat

One of things I always loved as a child was having my mum or dad read me a bedtime story.

It was a wonderful way to end the day – lots of one-on-one time with my parents, another delightful story in which I could lose myself (and the origin no doubt of my lifelong love of reading) and best of all, a chilled conclusion to my usual frenetic days (I have always been, and will always be, an Energiser Bunny extrovert).

Alas, getting someone to read you a story, particularly by someone as fetching as Tom Hardy, as you snuggle beside the doona (duvet), can be a tad problematic and let’s be honest just plan weird.

Thank goodness we have CBeeBies, a BBC network that caters to the under six crowd and which features at the end of its programming day, a bedtime story by some very well-known people such as David Tennant, James McAvoy, Sir Patrick Stewart and yes Tom Hardy.

Frankly I could have picked from a slew of these amazingly well-modulated storytellers, but there was something about Tom Hardy, dog resting on lap, and a world away from his current haunting Taboo persona, that warms the heart and soothes the bedtime story-deficient adult soul.

The book he’s reading You Must Bring a Hat by Simon Phillip with illustrations by Kate Hindley is a joy in and of itself but read by Tom Hardy? An absolute delight that you will thoroughly enjoy.
