The Tale of Billy Woodchuck by Arthur Scott Bailey (1877 - 1949).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-tale-of-billy-woodchuck-by-arthur-scott-bailey/
This collection of short stories is about the amusing adventures of Billy Woodchuck and the other animals he encounters around Pleasant Valley. He is often getting himself into a variety of situations and learns valuable lessons about life in the process. Arthur Scott Bailey wrote more than forty children's books and centered all of them around the world of animals, birds, and insects. The Tale of Billy Woodchuck is part of his Sleepy-Time Tales series. ( Jenn Broda)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/25090
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Yay! I would love the first three or the last three or something in the middle!

How delightful. May I have the first 10 sections? (Is that good or fair?) I could take every other?

EDIT: I have a woodchuck with whom I visit at least one a week. They are short visits, as he is always in a hurry and scurries away. He is very fond of the trellis work under my porch, so much so that he spends time chewing on them and creating a shape more in keeping with his rotundity.
E agora, José?

Alright, should be all set! We may or may not need a new DPL depending on if Lomond wishes to continue or not.

I should have mentioned that the first three chapters were already recorded by the original soloist. But, I'll give you the next ten, 4-13. That is perfectly fine.

Guess you'll have to give your woodchuck a name now, if he doesn't have one already. :wink:

Billy seems like a good name. I assume he is a bachelor, but Billy works for a girl woodchuck, too, I would think!
