Excerpt from the Story:
All the plants agreed and then continued their lively chat about the happenings in the village. The Pansy sisters especially, liked a good gossip because it helped to pass the time.

This week’s favourite subject had been Mouse. Mouse was different. Mouse was an animal.
Le sujet préféré de cette semaine avait été Souris. Souris était différent Souris était un animal.
Nobody really knew Mouse’s real name but it must be Mouse. He had such a mousy face; his legs looked like a mouse’s legs and he was so easily frightened.
En réalité, personne ne connaissait le vrai nom de Souris mais cela devait être Souris. Sa tête était était comme celle d'une souris, ses pattes aussi ressemblaient à celles d'une souris et un moindre rien l'effrayait.
