Excerpt from the tale:
The Pansy sisters lived in a green flowerpot below an old oak tree. They shared the pot with Basil, Rosemary, and Monkey.
Les sœurs Pensées vivaient dans un pot de fleurs vert sous un vieux chêne. Elles partageaient le pot avec Basilic, Romarin et Singe.
Rosemary and the Pansy sisters liked picking on Basil. The sisters’ bright colours scared him and he wanted them to be quiet.
Romarin et les sœurs Pensées aimaient bien taquiner Basilic. Les couleurs vivent des deux sœurs lui faisaient peur et il aurait préféré qu'elles se taisent.
“Basil, you’re so daft!” said the sisters, “monkeys climb trees!”.
Monkey ignored them but he was different. Monkey was an animal.
“Basilic, ne fais fais l’imbécile !” dirent les sœurs, “les singes peuvent grimper aux arbres !”
Singe préférait les ignorer mais savait bien qu'il était différent. Singe était un animal.
