Catherine Bruzzone / Illus. Clare Beaton
The Lucy Cat French series features dual-language comic-strip books that have been developed especially for early language-learning. The simple, bilingual text is displayed in speech bubbles and captions arranged in a practical double strip: French above, English below.
In Lucy Cat in Town / Lucie Chat en Ville, Lucy the cat is on a shopping-trip in town with mum. When a crooked thief tries to steal money from the market, brave Lucy stops him.
The high-quality colour illustrations, carefully-controlled bilingual text and frequent repetition will introduce young children to French in a natural, relaxed way.
The book includes a short, attractive bilingual picture dictionary (with pronunciation guide) to identify new key words in the foreign language.
Lucy Cat in Town / Lucie Chat en Ville is suitable for early readers and / or parents with little previous knowledge of French wanting to read this with their child. A useful parents' guide and simple-to-use pronunciation guide are included.
