So, I'd recommend Bab, but you could also choose Randa the maid, the teacher, or any of the female school children (--they're anyone without "Mrs." or "Aunt" in front of their name).
OK, if you're all right with it, I think I'd like to do Bab, then :) Thanks a lot!

That was GREAT!! Beautiful reading! :9: And good spacing in between lines. :thumbs:

Just one PL note:
Missing line @ 16:55: "and Bab stopped short in the arch..."

But that's all! :) Thank you!
Oooh! Ok, sorry about that - here is the revised file:

Possible mistake spotted in Chapter 7:

Miss Celia: "I don't doubt it, but I won't forget the book. Good-by, my lad, we shall soon meet again," and away went Miss Celia as if she were in a hurry to get back.

I think The bold line should be read by the narrator but it was highlighted for the role. I didn't read it.

Thanks for the hint, Lian! This is part of the narrator's text as you mentioned.
I'm sure Twinkle will edit this soon :)

Hey, just wanted to tell you, I have printed out my text for Chapter 7, and went ahead & bolded that section ("and away went Miss Celia as if she were in a hurry to get back"), so no need to go to any extra trouble to fix it for me. 8-)

No, this is GREAT! Especially from someone with so many lines in the book! Thank you!! :thumbs:

That's fine. I could be wrong, but I don't think it's necessary to make a note of the file size (--just the time length--), anyway. Just letting you know so there's less work for you. :)
