"Learning French for kids and children has never been more fun!

Following on from the success of the wildly popular The Fabulous Lost and Found and the little French mouse, bestselling author, and writer on the Emmy Winning Tales of Peter Rabbit, Mark Pallis returns to make learning French for kids and children even more fun!

""Lingo Dingo loves to help. Anyone. Anytime. Anyhow...."" In this heartwarming story, Lingo helps a talented French Chef make a birthday cake for a friend. There's just one problem. The Chef only speaks French.... What could go wrong!?!

This heartwarming English French kids book:

Blends an English language story with over 50 French words and phrases so that children learn French without realising; Builds a child's confidence in engaging with a the French language; Cements the foundation of a lifelong love of the French language.

And now with the follow up bilingual French English story for kids, Lingo Dingo and the French Astronaut, you can learn another 50 French words and phrases!

This book uses the unique Story Powered Language Learning method work to help children learn French without realising it.

Unlike other French English books for children, or traditional bilingual French English childrens books (or bilingual French English kids books), this French language learning book for kids is different. We take a fun character, Lingo Dingo, who kids will love, and then we put her in a tight squeeze, where she needs to figure out the meaning of the French words and phrases in the story in order to help save the day. Kids will be so busy laughing that they don't realise they're learning.

Message from the Author

I am passionate about learning languages. There is something special about that sense of connection you get when you talk to another person in their mother tongue. The expression 'they really spoke my language' really captures that magic feeling. So unlike other French childrens books, this book makes French for kids fun. I really wanted to focus on words and expressions that would make people smile. Imagine the joy on the child's face when they say that special phrase to a native speaker! They'll feel so proud, and you will too!

with my best wishes,

Mark Pallis
