Sir Patrick Stewart has taken on a new role, that of the sandman.
Stewart is narrating Patrick the Performing Moshling, “a rhyming story about a Stewart-esque character’s moonlit mission to calm his overactive mind at bedtime.
Peppered with subtle references to both Shakespeare and Star Trek, this fully orchestrated musical tale has been specially crafted to induce sleep using calming music, increasingly mellow narration and sleepy themes.”
The story is part of Moshi Twilight, a “sleep and relaxation audio app for kids.” Moshi Twilight features “melodic sleep stories, meditations, music, and sounds to help kids relax and fall asleep.”
“We are thrilled that Sir Patrick has narrated this very special story,” said Ian Chambers, CEO of Mind Candy. “It sounds incredible and Patrick’s rich, authoritative performance is totally magical. As well as helping kids fall asleep, we are now learning that our sleep stories are benefiting children with additional needs such as autism and ADHD, which is why this particular story focuses on a character with a busy bedtime mind.”
