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."
