That wolf is so cute Benedicte – haha. Note: if anyone wants help with the translation just give us a hoy! Just for starters – ‘oisillon’ is baby bird. Predator without ‘feint’ means a predator with a bold approach/without fear.
But you get the picture 😉

Just loved this, Gabrielle and Benedicte, but my french is pants….any chance of a quick translate, our attempts bludgeon out the humour 😀

haha – I know what you mean Kate (I thought you English people all learnt French from a young age 😉 )

thank you very much Selma, BB ( I like your idea of russian dolls, a sheep in a wolf in a…), Martin and Kate.
for a quick translate, it is the story of a father trying to give a lesson on how things work in the world to his son.
so it starts like this;
look son, this prints show us that a little bird was savagely eaten by a big bad beast.
the ( oh yep? may be in English) might be interpreted at the son who is skeptical and imagine a other story.

Thanks Ben for the translate 😉 Your story reminds me of the time my 2 dogs chased after an emu that was hanging around our front garden (admittedly a much larger bird – haha) and were barking like crazy – the emu turned around to face them and proceeded to chase my dogs back to the house – haha – my dogs were petrified (tails between their legs).

This cute as.
And a sentiment attached too I’m just learning about.
I often scribble like this myself.
