My Book of Favorite Fairy Tales by Edric VREDENBURG ( - 0).

This project can now be found in our catalog at https://librivox.org/my-book-of-favourite-fairy-tales-version-2-by-edric-vredenberg/
Here are some of the wonderful old stories for your reading enjoyment. You know some of them: Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Grethel and others. But sprinkled among them are stories I bet you have never heard of that are just as fun to read. Any of them are perfect for reading aloud and I encourage new readers to see if they don't make the LibriVox experience all the more enjoyable. Don't be shy, grab a story and jump in. (warning: the wolf eats the grandmother in this one!) ( phil c)
    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/15145
    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!

I'm ready to upload 11 - The White Cat, but "yy - yyyy" is not listed among the MCs - perhaps a template ID not yet changed?

Thank you!
