Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/alices-adventures-in-wonderland-version-7-by-lewis-carroll/
Alice’s adventures in Wonderland is probably one of the most well known and popular children's novels in the English language. Written in 1865 by Charles Lutwidge Dodgeson, better known by his pen name ‘Lewis Carrol’. Lewis, a mathematician, poet, photographer and inventor, tells a surreal fantasy tale, of Alice, who visits a world of unnatural logic after following a very smart White Rabbit, down a rabbit hole. The world she discovers is inhabited by the strangest and most endearing characters; The ‘Mad Hatter’, the sleepy ‘Dormouse’, the ‘Queen of Hearts’ and many more.

Every child should insist that this story is read to them! And they will remember it for ever, just like Alice.

This book was originally illustrated by Sir John Tenniel. His images are iconic and help to seed the imagination of any little person, no matter how big they are! Download them here. http://www.alice-in-wonderland.net/resources/pictures/alices-adventures-in-wonderland/

(Summary by Craig Franklin)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/11
  • 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!

This will be the Lucky Number 7th version of this book. I assume you're OK with that. ;) Be back in a bit with your MW.

EDIT: All set! We'll see if we can snag a DPL.

By the way - you're never the translator. I've taken your name out of the intros where it said "Translated by...". When filling in the project template generator, your name doesn't go in at all once you've already recorded for us. ;)

I'm not sure you could do this one too many times. I was actually quite surprised it had only been done 6 times.

I've been recording for stories for a primary school (5-6 year olds) during lock-down in the UK. I want to release a chapter a week to them to them, but really wanted to do it properly through Librivox.

Not sure what happened with the translator thing. I did notice it, but thought it had been auto filled by the system.

Thank you for taking it on. :thumbs:

OK. First chapter. Alice chases the pesky rabbit!

I'm not sure if I am supposed to update the magic window. It was the way I was asked to do it on my last Solo. Please just let me know if I you don't want me to do this.

Cheers

Very nicely read, Craig! I love this book :9:

Section 1 Note:

14:20- you say "This recording" but nothing after. I'm not sure if you meant to add something after that or it was to be edited out.

Other than that, Section 1 is perfect :clap:

The soloist as a rule updates the Magic Window. It would be the exception to have someone else update it. ;)

Section 3 Note:

About 0:08- missing intro disclaimer "This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."

This file is just a smidge quieter than the others. It is still within the acceptable range so it's up to you if you'd like to amplify it a little or not :)

Hi

Section 3 reloaded. Line added and I've brought the level up to the same as the previous chapter.

Hope to get the next one up later today.

Cheers
