Project Main Details

100 minute Audiobook reading 
We'd like to have a reading of our translation of 'The Little Prince' for an educational project.

We're looking for a pleasant, neutral accent. 'Mid-Atlantic', traditional newscaster, or else a classic British (not too affected though) or American (without the strong 'r's and open vowels) accent. This isn't set in stone though, and It's probably better if you work with what comes naturally to you.

The reading pace should be steady. Energy level should be moderate, not so bouncy and emphatic that it is distracting, but also not monotone and dull.

You don't need to do separate voices for all the characters, but maybe some distinction between the two characters that are currently speaking, to make it easier for the listener to follow.

Here's an example read in French that we are quite happy with: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5gCwUmyAuKHM1Fka2hJVVRFcEE/view?usp=sharing

The Chapters in the book are short, you could provide one file per chapter. I can do the final editing on the files (NR, compression, etc.).

Thanks for your time.

Script Details

It took me a long time to find out where he came from. The little prince, who asked me many questions, never seemed to hear the ones that I had. It was the words spoken by chance that, little by little, revealed everything to me. So, when he saw my airplane for the first time (I won't draw my airplane, it would be a drawing far too complicated for me), he asked me:

"What's that thing there?"

"It's not a thing. It flies. It's an airplane. It's my airplane."

And I was proud to have him know that I could fly.

Then he cried:

"What? You fell from the sky!"

"Yes," I said modestly.

"Oh! That's funny!…"
