Oh, wow, lot's on you plate!

Well, I'll still press ahead just because I'd like to get this cleared off my slate -- and because it's so much fun!
Looking forward to the next book, so keep me in mind.

Keep safe and enjoy!

Yes, please do continue! I won't at all mind if I come home to lots and lots of DR editing! :D

Beth, I forgot to respond to your offer of editing section 12. I appreciate the offer, but I really don't mind doing it. And I know you don't really enjoy editing much. When I get back from my trip, I hope I'll be able to plug steadily away at this and finish it out.

That's great - my shoulder is playing up again so the editing isn't great for that. I'll stick to PLing for Larry and script prepping the next book!

Was just looking at the Wikipedia for this book and found this adorable cover! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_Voyages_of_Doctor_Dolittle.djvu

Thanks, Leanne. I think this is the same cover that Gutenberg has. In any case, I've never done a cover and don't feel prepared to try now. I'm sure whoever ends up designing our cover will do a great job. Our cover makers always do. :)

I just found out that there will be a new Doctor Dolittle movie in 2020, and the Doctor will be played by.... Robert Downey Jr? :? I'm not sure how I feel about this. Polynesia will be voiced by Emma Thompson, which will be good, I think. But otherwise... Well, I'll withhold further judgement for now. :|

Section 5 is PL OK! I love all the different voices and how the two dogs are distinctly different from each other! Looking forward to the courtroom scene as well!

Narration for Section 10 is PL OK, and this Section is now ready for editing!

I've just started cutting together section 8, which is the first section in which Bumpo appears, and unless it is later on in the recording for some reason, the voice credit seems to be missing. I listened to just the beginning of the other Bumpo files, and it's not there either. I don't know if TJ is still subscribed to this topic, but I'll go ahead and message her to ask for the missing credit.
