Perrette is one talented girl, starring in and narrating her story in four different languages. She seamlessly switches back and forth between English, French, Spanish and Arabic, never missing a beat in her tale. Perrette is on the way to the market with a fortune in milk and eggs. As she walks she daydreams of all she will do once she is rich. Live in a castle, drive a fancy sports car, hire her brother as a knight. Unfortunately her daydreams lead to distraction and Perrette trips, spilling her milk and eggs. Her disappointment in herself turns to resolution to try harder the next time, providing a gentle moral to the story.

While reading the story children can easily switch between the different languages. Both the narration and the written text make the change. I found the narration to be lively, well done and enjoyable in each of the languages. When children tap the illustrations the names of the objects appear and these words will also switch with the languages. It’s a fun way to learn new vocabulary.

Perrette and the Pot of Milk is an adaptation of a classic fable and it maintains a timeless feel but has fun, modern updates with the things that Perrette wants to spend her fortune on. It’s a unique blend of old and new and I think children will find it appealing and relatable.

    Lol, totally true. Fuck your golden monkey Mrs. Coulter, Lord Asr90l&#e3i;s snow leopard could eat him. By the way, has the snow leopard been named yet? Just want to make sure I don't spoil any details, no matter how small, since I can't follow along in reading the actual chapter.
