Rumpty-Dudget's Tower: A Fairy Tale by Julian Hawthorne (1846 - 1934).

Julian Hawthorne spins a charming fairy tale featuring the mischievous dwarf Rumpty-Dudget, Princess Hilda, Prince Frank and the Queen. Add in some gnomes, golden ivy-seed, diamond water-drops and magic fire and you are in for enchanting adventures. ( Larry Wilson)
  • This project is complete. Audio files can be found on our catalog page at: https://librivox.org/rumpty-dudgets-tower-a-fairy-tale-by-julian-hawthorne/


    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/62408
    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!

G'day guys,

I've actually been reading this story to my daughter, so I have some rough audio of the first six chapters of this one already.
Can I get 24 hours to check whether what I've got is of any use?

I'm new. Thanks for helping

Well, I'm not totally clear about this. :hmm:
Do I understand that HansenJoel is offering to take Chapters 1-6, and Mooninya is offering to take 7-9, instead of 1?
If that is the case, if put you both in the MW window for those, and I'll read the preface.

Give me a thumbs-up if we're all set on that, and our MC will move us to "readers found." :D
