The Tale of Benny Badger, by Arthur Scott Bailey (1877 - 1949)
Let's follow the adventures of Benny the Badger as he bumbles around the meadows digging everywhere and trying to be friends with all the animals. Unless they threaten him of course, then it's another matter and his ability to fight is legendary. But he is a peaceful soul, full of inquisitiveness and natural good humor. These are short chapters and fun to read so jump right in everyone. (Summary by phil chenevert)

Phil,

I just finished a couple of DPL gigs, and this one sounds absolutely fun.

What say?

Wayne

P.S. How's that for 'shortly"?

Hi there Patrice and welcome to LV (LibriVox),

I am now the DPL on this project, thanks to Phil.

Your reading is adorable. :9: Outstanding for a Newbie, but you certainly are not a newbie at reading/narrating. I am looking forward to hearing more on this project from you.

The reading was perfect, but there is one small detail that you should correct. It is the goal of LV to have between .5 and 1 second of 'silence' before the reading starts. You are a little over a second. It will be a very easy fix. I also noticed in your first recording, you were right at one second, so just start talking a little sooner :wink:

Thanks,

Wayne
