Here are corrected Chapters 5, 6 and 7, i.e., corrected to the extent of removing the Chapter number before the Chapter title, which is the problem you have pointed out for Chapter 5. There may be other problems with Nos. 6 and 7 that you will find when you check them.

PL-notes for Chapter 6! Overall, great job, just a few minor changes! :D

(9:18-9:41) "said the hippo boy"; you read "said the hippy boy"
In the next paragraph, a loud barking dog can be heard in the background during the sentences, "Then the bird flew away across the jungle,
and the hippo stayed at the bottom of the pit-trap, waiting for what would happen next.Though he did not know it, his real adventures had
begun, and he was to have a great many."

(11:40-12:07) The barking dog is back! "the black man gave a cry of delight. “Oh, we have caught a hippo! We have caught a young hippo!” he shouted, leaping about and waving his sharp spear over his head. “It is much better than a goat or a pig, for we shall have much more meat to eat. Ho! for the hippo!”"

(18:20) Missed a sentence "The little hippo boy was being taken away."

Just thought I'd take a listen. We can sometimes allow a pass on background noises, but I also find the dog barking a bit too much. Sorry. (and better not turn Chunky into a hippy) :lol:

Thanks,

Just one note for chapter 10.

(8:58) "Then Chunky was taken to a large building, where his cage was set down among those containing Gimpy, Short Tooth, the lion, the monkeys and others."

The middle part of this sentance (the bolded part) seems to have been cut out. It will probably be easiest to rerecord the whole sentence

Besides that, great recording!!! :D

Here are chapters 11 and 12!

Chapter 11, running time 11:00:

Chapter 12, running time 10:50:
https://librivox.org/uploads/kathrinee/chunky_12_barnum_128kb.mp3
Just one note for Chapter 11, at (0:14), the Librivox disclaimer is supposed to end with, "Chunky, the Happy Hippo, by Richard Barnum. CHUNKY'S NEW TRICK ", instead you have, "Chunky, the Happy Hippo, by Richard Barnum. Chapter 11 CHUNKY'S NEW TRICK "
If you can remove the extra chapter 11, this will be all set!
Thanks!!! :D

(0:14) Similarly to chapter 11, the Librivox disclaimer is supposed to end with, "Chunky, the Happy Hippo, by Richard Barnum. CHUNKY AND THE LITTLE GIRL ", instead you have, "Chunky, the Happy Hippo, by Richard Barnum. Chapter 12 CHUNKY AND THE LITTLE GIRL "

(10:40) Please insert "End of Chapter 12"

Great job!!! Thank you!!! :D :D :D
