Chinook the Cinnamon Cub by Allen Chaffee (1884-1985).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/chinook-the-cinnamon-cub-by-allen-chaffee/


Allen Chaffe is author of numerous children's books including the Fuzz Wuzz series and a popular rendition of Hiawatha as well as The World of Oz. Here we join the adventures of a the mischievous cub bear, Cinnamon in the forests of Oregon where he meets animal friends such as the squirrel, frog and wapati. ( Larry Wilson)
Volunteers outside the USA: Allen Chafee died in 1985. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955), UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies.
    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/61888
    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!

Always check the Bibrec tab on PG first! :wink: Chaffee, Allen, 1884-1985

Book is fine, just will be limited to U.S. readers.

Well, now! I really feel ignorant -- but not as ignorant as I was earlier today! :roll:
Thanks, Jo. :)

And, if that's accurate, that's 101 :shock:

Hi!
Well, I see you have submitted your one-minute test recording, so that's good. I'm not where I can listen to it at the moment, but when you get the OK, post back here again and let me know who you would like to be listed in the LibriVox catalog -- real name, pseudonym or other nickname. Meanwhile, I'll save this section for you.

Just one issue with chapter 1 Larry: you said “the Chinook Cinnamon Cub, by Allen Chaffee” instead of “Chinook the Cinnamon Cub, by Allen Chaffee”. I love your roaring :D
