French for Cats

French for Cats. Henry N. Beard. 1991. 96 pages. [Borrowed]

First sentence: The Cat Le Chat

Premise/plot: Love cats? Want to learn French? Want to remember the French you learned in school? French for Cats is a phrase book for cat lovers. It is an illustrated phrase book with clever moments.

I meow
Je miaule
I purr
Je Ron Ronnie
I sleep
Je dors
Some phrases are short and very practical. Others are much more complex.
I wish that the lawn mower would run over the neighbor's cat.
Je voudrais que la tondeuse a Gabon ecrase le chat du voisin.
My thoughts: I like this one. I do. I had French in high school and college, but it's been twenty years. This book is a quick, cute read!
