Alice and more :)

Earlier this week (and quite earlier than expected but just perfectly in time for the big November LibriVox clean up) Kara and I finished our duet of “Alice’s Abenteuer im Wunderland” by Lewis Carroll.  (That’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland only in German!) The translation is awesome and it was so much fun to read.

Now we are trying to find another German children’s book to read. But this is amazingly tricky… especially since even the translation has to be published before 1923 (and the author should be dead 70 years!) So suggestions would be very welcome!!!

Listen and meet the mock turtle, the white rabbit, the Cheshire cat (my very fav.)…! It’s fun! Soooooo here it is:

Alice’s Abenteuer im Wunderland

As I’ve mentioned before LibriVox is doing a huge clean up in November! So far 120 *loud cheering* projects have been cataloged! That makes it the best month ever in the whole LV history (and will be really hard to beat next time ;))! Anyway… YAY us!!!

Among those are Arabian Nights by Andrew Lang and Under the Lilacs by Louisa May Alcott! I’ve prooflistened both of them… so I’m the one to blame if there are still repeats, sneezes and so on! 😉

Listen! Both of them are awesome fun books!
