This is for sure a well-done adaption of an incredible title. One of the things I enjoyed the most was how the story was narrated half in Spanish and half in French, rather than one language through the entire story. I used to study both French and Spanish but never had the opportunity to practice them both simultaneity. It is nice to see that this title provides such as great twist in its structure that encourages readers to learn more vocabulary in order to reach the end of this wonderful story. Furthermore, I found it really useful for this title to include a PDF version of both languages. This allowed me to understand the meaning of words and sentence structure in Spanish while confirming its applications in French and vice versa.

The sound quality is good and the narrators make a wonderful performance in which their repetitions of words allowed me to recall their definition and usage. The unforgettable quotes and phrases from this book will allow readers to learn the language because of the story, making it a more interactive and a fun experience. I highly recommend this book for those who want their kids to be bilingual and for those who are aiming at enhancing their vocabulary, listening and reading skills.
