I would be happy to read the Piffilosaurus.

Thanks Denis, that’s a non overlapping claim so I’m sure that will be fine - I’ve put it in the MW.

PL OK! Thanks Algy, a very nice deep-voiced banana-eating Piffilosaurus! :thumbs:

Hi, here are the first of Jip's sections:

I've gone for a more "common", somewhat excitable doggy voice to contrast with Dolittle's - please let me know if it's excessive and I'll rerecord (another reason for uploading some of these short parts first before laying down Jip's big story)!

I love the doggy voice effects! Sections 3,4 and 5 are all PL OK. In Section 7 there is a second line for Jip much further down the page which wasn't recorded, please add that one in, and continue with the other Jip sections! Thanks Rafe! :thumbs:

Great, glad you enjoyed!

There were two lines missing from Section 9 (Jip's long story). Rather than putting these in a separate file, it would be better if you could insert them at the required spot, which is 7:13 in your file. The lines are “‘My master has been ordered to paint the portrait of a prince,’ he said, putting on no end of elegance. “‘Who is your master?’ I said. ‘Anybody would think you were going to paint the portrait yourself.’

@13:32 there's another line missing: “Then, rubbing out the whole picture, George Morland re-drew it in his way. And it was so lifelike you could nearly hear the cat lapping up the milk.

That was a great job reading that whole long story - I hope you didn't hurt your throat doing Jip's voice!

Section 7 is now PL OK, but next time please don't put any extra punctuation in the filenames, the uploader doesn't handle brackets well.
Sections 8, 10, 12, 13 and 14 are all PL OK!

If you are looking for more Dramatic Reading work, I still a few more roles filled in the Sherlock Holmes collection, and there are quite a few roles open in the DR Scenes and Stories collection - both are linked in my signature file, red and light blue, respectively.

Oops - sorry about the filename issue, and not sure how I missed those lines! I’ll add those in and reupload during the week.

Thanks Rafe! Jip is now all PL OK!

If you are interested in more DR roles, I still have two open parts in the Sherlock holmes collection, and there are lots of open roles in the DR Short Stories collection too! Love your work!
