Basil, Rosemary and the Pansy sisters are lively, chatty little plants. They think they know some stuff, but when it comes to this animal, they know nothing. One wild assumption leads to another and gets them into big trouble.
This illustrated story has been designed for bilingual children and others wishing to read a dual language text in French and English. This book is divided into four sections. In the first part, for ease of understanding the two languages are displayed together mostly one or two sentences at a time. Showing the languages together helps compare words and common expressions easily. The second part, the French only version, allows intermediate students to test their understanding. The third part is in English only and lastly a mobile friendly bilingual English - French version. Reading this fun bilingual story will help you learn French.

Excerpt from the story—
The plants were talking about the road crossing when a big animal appeared. It came across the road towards the plants.
Les plantes discutaient justement de cette route lorsqu'un gros animal apparut, il traversa la route en direction des plantes.

"What is that?" Asked Basil.
"It is a big black and white animal," said Rosemary.
"Qu'est-ce que c'est?" demanda Basilic.
"C'est un gros animal noir et blanc" dit Romarin.

"It is very boring," said the Pansy sisters. "We have beautiful bright colours. That animal is just black and white and boring!"
"C'est plutôt ennuyeux" dirent les Sœurs Pensées. "Nous avons de belles couleurs vives. Cet animal est juste noir, blanc et ennuyeux."
