This illustrated story has been designed for bilingual children and others wishing to read a parallel text in English and French. For ease of understanding, the languages are displayed together just one or two sentences at a time. The aim was to make the translation as direct as possible but always using everyday language of native speakers. 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. "The Pansy sisters lived in a blue flowerpot next to the village pond. They shared the pot with Basil, Rosemary, and Frog. Les sœurs Pensées vivaient dans un pot de fleurs bleu à côté de la mare du village. Elles partageaient le pot avec Basilic, Romarin et Grenouille. At this moment, they were chatting lively about all the new happenings in the village. The Pansy sisters especially, liked a good gossip it helped to pass the time. En ce moment elles discutaient vivement les derniers événements du villages. Les sœurs Pensées en particulier, adoraient entendre un bon potin qui les aideraient à passer le temps.
