Excerpt from the tale:
Naughty Monkey loved to swing on doors. He liked the kitchen door best.
Singe Filou aimait se balancer aux portes. Il aimait particulièrement la porte de la cuisine.
"Monkey! Stop swinging on that door," said Mum. "You will break it!"
The door stopped swinging.
« Singe ! Arrête de te balancer à cette porte », lui dit Maman. « Tu vas la casser ! »
La porte cessa de bouger.
"Ah!" Monkey said. "What happened?"
« Ah ! » dit Singe, « qu'y a-t-il ? »
