good morning Linda and thanks for the next chapter. Very well read, yet again, and I only found one single pronunciation error:

> at 11:07: "elle entendit patauger dans la mare" - you say "patauguer", but it's a /j/ sound, like in "partager"

the rest is perfect

Oh OK. I can change that. Funny, my eyes saw the word "patauguer". In those letters. :oops:
I will send you the corrected file today.

nicely done again, Linda :clap: I am glad though that the mouse did NOT tell her whole story, I thought she was a bit tedious to listen to LOL (not your fault, but the fault of the mouse) I liked this tail-shaped poem, a bit of a pity that one cannot really convey this in reading.

I have a few small pronunciation corrections to propose:

> at 1:30: "et comme celui-ci refusa tout net de le lui dire" - in the word "net" you need to pronounce the final 't' as well. /nett/

> at 9:16: "lui présentait solennellement le dé" - don't ask me why, but for some reason, this 'e' should be pronounced 'a' /so-la-nellement/ probably some linguistic mystery

the following two are suggestions to do "liaison" with the 's'. I would say, they are optional, as I don't think it's really wrong to say it your way, but maybe for French speakers it would sound more fluent if you did liaison:

> at 10:06: " car les gros oiseaux"

> at 14:59: "enfin sous un prétexte ou sous un autre"

OK, Sonia,
I'll make all these corrections. Those were points that I was debating about doing anyway: for some reason, I was thinking about pronouncing "tout nette" and making the liaison at "gros oiseaux" and "sous un prétexte, etc" but I opted for the opposite. Lol
"Solennellement" I did not know had to be with an "a" sound.
I will change all these things, and upload the new file today.
Thank you, Sonia!
