Chapters 4 ans 5 are PL OK.

After hurricane Irma Verizon put up a ton of 'hotspots' so we could have some internet access. I didn't use it often other than to check in with family but I'm sure a lot of people appreciated it.

I'm glad you are safe. :9:

2:00 – missing text - "Skydragon!" he announced, after a brief glance at the gleaming shape drifting down through the fog. "Quick Hippen! Summon the Royal Blowmen! Back, stand back, you witless woffs! Do you wish to be crushed and eaten? Yon monster will alight on the North shore any moonite now!" At Strut's loud warning, half of his subjects took to their heels while the rest scurried round to the South side of the lake, every head turned up toward the mysterious dragon.

Chapter 6 has been fixed and uploaded. I am surprised there were not more problems with this file so thanks for the careful listen. Editing without the text is harder than I imagined it would be.

Chapter 7
3:19 word change (optional) - "Oh, I'm just Jellia Jam, Ozma's Chief Maid in Waiting," Jellia said as she trotted uneasily along at his side.
Recorded as tottered

7:48 pause seems a little long to my ear.

8:50 word change - "And I am its High and Mighty Sovereign, ruler of the Spikers who inhabit the strata below, and of the Zoomers who inhabit the strata above, and of all the other spheres and half-spheres in this particular area.
Recorded as species

All seems to be returning to normal for you. :9:

I'm out of town until Monday. I'm taking my computer so I will still be able to PL. I'll be slow though so I understand if you need to get someone else and hurry this along.
