The legendary musician and the father of two sons delighted fans old and young as he read The Dog Detectives: Lost in London by Zoa Gypsy, Fin Gypsy and Monika Suska for the children’s program last week. The story follows canine detectives trying to source six missing black ravens whose duty was to protect the city. “Family is always really important to me, no less so this year, where they have been supporting me on my Farewell Tour launch and working on the movie Sherlock Gnomes. I now get to read a bedtime story to families all over the UK on CBeebies. It was a great day and I hope you enjoy it,” Sir Elton told BBC. Most fans revealed in Twitter that they were overjoyed with such an unexpected appearance of the star. Tom Hardy, Dolly Parton and astronaut Tim Peake have also read stories for their younger fans.
