Excerpt from the story:
The Pansy sisters lived in a yellow flowerpot under the big apple tree. They shared the pot with Basil, Rosemary and Mouse.
As irmãs Amor-perfeito viviam num vaso amarelo por baixo da grande macieira. Elas partilhavam o vaso com o Manjericão, a Alecrina e o Rato.
The summer was very hot and the plants all agreed how nice it was to live under the big shady apple tree.
“It is so nice to live under a shady apple tree,” said Basil.
O verão estava muito quente e todas as plantas concordavam em como era bom viver por baixo da grande macieira, à sombra.
"É bom viver por baixo da grande macieira, à sombra," disse o Manjericão.
