Here is another charming kids' reader with pleasant illustrations. See the companion in the series, La Souris des Villes et la Souris des Champs, which I have listed under 1980? Madame Félicité Fourmi is the concierge in Sidonie Cigale's apartment house. Félicité has, apparently, no fun at all in her life. She is the only person not delighted with Sidonie's singing. One crisis occurs when Sidonie waters plants on the seventh floor and gets a few drops on Félicité's head below. Sidonie spends everything she gets on clothes. Of course, she is three months behind on her rent. Sidonie gets an audition at the television station, where she sings three of her own songs. She is so successful that she earns more than enough to pay the rent--and gets an invitation to appear weekly on the show. She returns home to find that Félicité has fallen and hurt herself. She cares for Félicité and they become friends. After a very happy party, Félicité pledges to buy a television and to watch Sidonie perform on TV every week. There are three pages of exercises for a student to complete at the end. There is much more text--and more variation from the usual fable--than one would expect in a forty-eight page pamphlet.
