Greetings -

Let's see how Billy Bunny is doing today:

Chapters 2, 3, 4, and 4 are just fine, but they make me wonder just how many things Billy Bunny has in his knapsack and how his popgun doesn't get messed up with the apple pie. :? :?

The MW shows them to be PL OK.

Section 10 has something that might need to be tended to.

TIME; 01:50 TEXT: " “Oh, I am king of the Bullfrog Pond, Ker-plunk, ker-chunk, ker-plunk!" There is a clicking noise in the background. I will leave it up to you if you think it needs to be filtered out. Otherwise, it's PL OK.

I can only wonder if this would be allowed in children's' books today: "And if the lawn mower doesn’t run over our white poodle dog and cut off all his hair". Hmmmm.

Thank you, shashankjakhmola, for another set of nicely read chapters. All were found to be PL OK.

I checked out your YouTube channel. It was fun to put a face with the voice.

The patriotic nature of Chapter 14 reminded me that this was probably written during the first world war.

Interesting that David Cory also wrote a book entitled "Little Jack Rabbit and Danny Fox".

That wasn't so much background as it was my lips - or maybe my tongue. I was just about inside the microphone for the Frog King's lines, so it picked up things that aren't normally a problem. But since the sound bugged you (and since it was easier than I expected to zoom in on and snip out those 3 clicks), here's an fixed file ready for your spot check.

3:30 (it's 0.05 seconds shorter than the previous one)

Thanks for keeping me honest!

I am always wondering just how "picky" to be with things in a person's readings, so I often leave it up to powers that be greater than me to decide if a change should be made. :)

See you in the MW soon,

sstmarie, welcome to LibriVox. Glad to have you aboard. May we assume that sstmarie has something to Sault Ste Marie?

Here are some comments on Chapters 28-31:

A good first offering. Good voice level and pronunciation. Easy to listen to. Just a few minor things that might need some attention.

Chapter 28:

I find it interesting that the title of this section has "Mrs. Weasel" but the story has "Old Man Weasel".

TIME: 00:07 Bit of a stutter here.

TIME: 02:50 TEXT: "he couldn’t bend it, and his ankle so he couldn’t wiggle it," Bit of a stutter/hesitation in this phrase.

Chapter 29:

TIME: 00:12 Bit of a stutter here.

Chapter 30:

TIME: 00:41 TEXT: "then, of course, the automobile wouldn’t go, for the cabaret wouldn’t work and the engine wouldn’t whistle. So Billy Bunny got out the sticking plaster" This section has a repeat and a stutter in it.

TIME: 03:00 TEXT: "you next time whether Uncle Lucky and Billy Bunny" There is a repeat at "Billy".

Chapter 31:

PL OK

Looking forward to more offerings from you.

Ah, Lomond's been busy :clap: :clap:
I know we gave you a flood, but I appreciate your good PL work.
I think your approach is fine when you point out things that may be optional for the reader.

BTW, we did catalog the previous Billy Bunny book today. :D

Thank you, Lomond. I would imagine that Billy Bunny's knapsack has everything in it except the kitchen sink!!
