New Adventures of Alice by John Rae (1882 - 1963)

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/new-adventures-of-alice-dramatic-reading-by-john-rae-2/
After reading and re-reading the book many time as a boy and wishing that Lewis Carroll would have written another Alice In Wonderland Book, John Rae began imagining what that girl would have gotten up to if he had done so. Telling these stories to his children over the years, where they were enthusiastically received, he finally decided to share them with the world. And here they are! The New Adventures of Alice (Summary by Phil Chenevert)


Volunteers outside the USA: John Rae died in 1963. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955) or Canada (author's death plus 50 years).
  1. Is there a deadline?

    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim (or by the target completion date, whatever is sooner). Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it’ll go back to the pool. There’s no shame in this; we’re all volunteers and things happen. The target completion date for this project is 01 December 2013.
  2. How to claim a part, and 'how it all works' here

    To find a role to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are “up for grabs.” Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which role you’d like to read. Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording. Since there are MANY small roles, feel free to claim more than one role, as long as no 2 roles are in the same chapter. :D
  3. New to recording?

    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from the GoogleDocs links in the MW): http://www.childrensbooksonline.org/New_Adventures_of_Alice/index.htm
  5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.

    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.


    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!

I've had a death in the family and won't be around Librivox much for the next while. I'll be back ... when I'm back. I appreciate your patience in the meanwhile. :)

I better keep an eye on this - you know my penchant for Alice!

If there's going to be any "cute" animal parts... I would like to claim one. :) Elley would you let me know which one, you'd think I'd be good at? :D

I'll DPL this if you like.

Enjoy Tom Swift? Perhaps you would enjoy a book about him meeting up with some Diamond Makers
Or perhaps you'd rather talk about music with children.

Thanks Patrick, that would be great. Have you DPL'd a dramatic work before? Just making sure you know this needs to be checked against the text to be sure no lines are missing or anything. :)

No I have not, but I typically read along with any books I DPL anyway because I find it hard to focus on that and something else at the same time.

I'm not Elley, but I did prepare the text so I know a lot about the characters. There's a small part (about two lines) of a Kitten in chapter VI, but that's about it for cute animal parts. There's a snail doorman in chapter XII, and the Snipe is in a few chapters, but I don't really think of him as a "cute" animal part. Hope that helps!

Is Alice claimed already? If so, you can choose what's best for my voice :)

Thanks Barry. :) My word file with all the MW set up info is on my work computer, so I'll get the MW set up tomorrow.

Amanda - Haili73 is going to be reading Alice (she gets first dibs on parts because she prepared the text for dramatic reading). I can't chose a part for you because I haven't read the text yet myself!! Once I get the MW up tomorrow with the links to the chapters, you'll have to take a peek and see what strikes your fancy. :)

OK!! MW is up and running. :D Since there are many roles for this book, and several of them are only in one chapter, you may claim more than one role, so long as you're not reading multiple roles within a chapter.
Example: You could read Blackbird (ch 2), Barber (ch 4), Cook (ch 7, 10, and 11), and Postman (ch 9) if you wanted, as none of these characters have overlapping chapters. (Again, there are LOTS of characters like this, I just chose 4 at random for an example). :)
