Story 28 - "UNCLE WIGGLY AND KITTY KAT" - fixes required

Checker reports your audio level is outside the LibriVox allowable range - the section is 84.7 and the OK range is 86-92. It looks like you could boost the level 3.5 dB without any clipping; that would get the section in the range.

at 0:23 (in the introduction) "Uncle Wiggly and Kitty Kat" is repeated

at 5:07 "with the double-jointed [tail]" is repeated

at 7:45 "toast with some yellow slices of yellow carrots" - too many 'yellow's in there. It might be hard to edit out, however, so perhaps it's best left alone.

Please boost the overall volume and delete the two repeats - and possibly the extra carrot if you can make a clean edit - and everything should be fine.

By the way, I notice your recordings have very little audio below 150 Hz - are you running a filter on your recordings to do that? (This is just fine; there isn't much of anything below 150 Hz in the human voice. I'm just curious.)
