Re: [DR]Doctor Dolittle's Post Office, Hugh Lofting - ke

You make a good point, in that this book doesn't open in a very happy frame of mind. It probably would sound strange if the Doctor was overly happy in the midst of poor Zuzana's suffering. I should also mention, perhaps, that I was initially surprised by the cheeriness I heard in your first perform...
