French edition of Sophie's Squash
Sophie takes a trip to a farmers' market with her parents where she chooses a squash for dinner. But Sophie becomes rather attached to it and won't let her Mum cook it; she draws it a face on it and names it Bernice. Sophie takes Bernice everywhere, despite her parents’ gentle warnings that Bernice will begin to rot. As winter nears, Sophie does start to notice changes and has to find a way to help the squash.
Sophie et sa courge is written entirely in French with no English translation or pronunciation guide as it is intended for native users.
