Monsieur Lapin: Monsieur Lapin in Hospital by Rhona R. McMillan
When a stray dog tries to snatch Sophie’s toy rabbit from her, it causes her to have a serious accident. The rabbit, named Monsieur Lapin, has a unique magical power: He has the ability to move whenever he hears French spoken. The arrival of Auntie Françoise from France is the opportunity Monsieur Lapin needs to save the day… and Sophie!
An entertaining read, this book is also an educational tool providing young readers with an understanding of simple French words and sayings, with everyday expressions and their English translations peppered throughout the story.
