This one's a bit more gruesome than the others. Perhaps reading fairy tales to children was more of a punishment in those days. :)

I have uploaded Chapter 7, The Three Bears
https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/favoritefairytales_07_marshall_128kb.mp3
Duration 05:58

I found it a bit of a challenge to do the voices. I didn't think it would sound right to not change my voice at all for the big and little bear so I tried to make just a slight change for each and tried to do it consistently throughout but I'm not sure it worked exactly as intended.

Any feedback on this (or anything else) would be welcomed. And thanks for doing all the PL so quickly.

Thanks,
Evan

sect 7 The Three Bears

PL OK :thumbs:

Evan, nice rough, gruff, for the Great, Huge Bear.

Middle-Sized Bear voice fit nicely between the two, it did sound "middle".

You gave it a nice try for the Little, Small, Wee Bear voice (after all is said and done, he is still a bear.)

Shiverrrr! Goldilocks, was a major improvement to the story. :clap:

Well done. :D

I've added a summary taken from the book. I noticed that in some of the summaries the link to the text is included in case listeners want to read along, so I've added that as well. I assume that some listeners like to use the text with the recordings to help with their reading skills, especially kids or those learning English as a second language.

Please let me know if the summary is okay.

Thanks,
Evan
