The Adventures of Diggeldy Dan by Edwin P. Norwood ( - 0).

Diggeldy Dan (rhymes with Piggildy Pan in case you are wondering) is a most ingenious fellow who lives in a circus called Spangleland. Yep, that is it's name. He looks like a clown because he perhaps is a clown but a very special clown who invites the Pretty Lady with the Blue Blue Eyes (a very special person herself) to meet with the animals of the circus.
Many things happen that are just too amazing to talk about because you won't believe them but if you read this book you will perhaps learn that fun is inside all of us. The writing is adult, not childlike, and easy to understand. ( phil chenevert)
    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/62599
    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

      Need noise-cleaning?

      128 kbps MP3
      diggeldydan_##_norwood_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. diggeldydan_01_norwood_128kb.mp3)

I listened to Chapter 1. Pretty sure it is PL-OK.
Just one thing, the reader didn't read the caption under the picture. Don't think it is necessary given the listener can't see the picture but just wanted to make sure; if needed it should be inserted at (8:03). :D

Yes! I proof listened for the weekly poetry before and I am also proof listening for the play I am BCing! I followed along with the text while listening and made sure the reader didn't miss anything/repeat/stumble and then ran the section through checker to check tech specs.

Great. Would you like to be DPL for this project? You don't need to of course but just thought I'd ask.
