Frozen’s ‘Olaf’ reads The Bear and the Piano bed-time story

Josh Gad - who voices Olaf in the Frozen movies - is reading a bedtime story every evening on his twitter feed

Bedford author and illustrator, David Litchfield, got an unexpected surprise when he found out that his book was being read live on twitter by animated-movie royalty.

Josh Gad, the actor who provides the voice of Olaf the snowman in the blockbuster Frozen films, is taking to Twitter every evening to tell a bedtime story.

“My friend Richard tweeted me to tell me that Olaf had read my book online to entertain kids during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis,” David told the Bedford Independent.

“He’s reading a different book every night until this thing is over, which is great. I was over the moon that he read the Bear and the Piano.

“His little send-off at the end where he says ‘one day we will all meet again in the forest’ really brought a tear to my eye. What a star!”

You can catch up on all of Josh’s bedtime stories at @joshgad on Twitter.

We think he’s brilliant as Olaf, but we’re sure he won’t mind us saying his Scottish accent needs a little bit of work…
