Here at The Roald Dahl Story Company, we’ve been working with the marvellous minds at Calm to create audio that helps listeners relax, unwind, and doze off to Dream Country.

What is a sleep story?

Unlike a traditional audiobook, or a guided meditation, sleep stories give listeners a gradual unwind, rather than a gripping build-up. The character’s experience becomes slower and calmer as the story goes on, lulling the listener gradually to sleep.
