Bobby in Search of a Birthday by Lebbeus Mitchell (1879 - 1963).

Thisi project can now be found in our catalog at https://librivox.org/bobby-in-search-of-a-birthday-by-lebbeus-mitchell-2/
Bobby is a little orphan boy of about 5 who makes the awful discovery that he has somehow lost his birthday and decides to go looking for it. Where could it be? This epic quest takes him into strange places and meetings with people who are sometimes brusk, but mostly kind and helpful to the small tot. Does he find his bi'frday? Well I can't tell you that, you will just have to listen. A delightful tale full of whimsy and fun. ( phil chenevert)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/43569
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!
