BTW, what does the song say? I had not looked up a translation...
LOL, it's literally nonsense Chinese. "Fong fong mong mong" would be an indication.

Sure that would be great, Beth.

Question: How do I edit the thread title to take out the ~ (we have a DPL now)? Or is this something only MCs/Admin can do?

Who is the DPL for the final parts, so I can give them MW access?

Gosh, I just read through the script and it's quite racist, isn't it? The character of Hop Yet ticks all the stereotypes. Just speaking as a Chinese person!
Your comments are all well taken, Leanne.
We do frequently find thiese out-dated and ugly racist elements in these older works that we do for LibriVox. It is a sober reminder of the prejudices that are a part of our history (and of so many that still exist). We find it in all kinds of literature -- poetry, novels, history, travel, essays where these thoughtless images are portrayed. It takes brave readers like you to depict them, and give the world a glimpse into our past.

Not so unacceptable, and sometime embarrassingly funny or the older scientific texts that we sometimes read. What people believed about the world scientifically 100-150 years ago is astounding.

Thanks for your participation!

I'm currently recording a children's version of Pliny's natural history (from ~70 AD, if I remember correctly)... It's really funny what sort of odd ideas they had at the time about science, while on the other hand it's astounding how much they already knew!

Got it. I knew it was some easy thing I was overlooking.

Lucasoliveira has volunteered to DPL.

LOL Yes :) Such a cute little maiden.
As far a bigger parts, there is Polly or Laura. Smaller parts too like Mrs. Howard.

I've been thinking of making the Teen and Boy roles (Phillip, Geoffrey, Jack, Dicky) gender neutral.
