Petit-Bond, lui, veut faire connaissance de l'Etranger.
Cette histoire a suscité des questions chez mon fils de 3 ans 1/2, mais je crois qu'il est encore un peu petit pour enregistrer le message.

The stranger is a rat. The other animals all react quite predictably. Rats are dirty, aggressive, lazy, and given to stealing. We've got to get him out of here!
The frog isn't convinced. He wants to see with his own eyes. He starts hanging out where he can observe the rat at his encampment by the side of a stream. He observes that the rat does his own cooking, and it smells good. The rat takes a bath every day. He keeps his campsite clean. He reports that his back to his friends, but they are not swayed.
The frog boldly goes up and introduces himself one day. The rat says yeah, I've seen you hanging around, let's talk. And he invites the frog to sit down on the bench that he has built with a beautiful view out over the water. The rat tells the frog about his life. He is been to a great many countries, including China. He speaks three languages. In my Russian edition of this tale the other two are French and English. He has worked at a great many trades.
The frog is duly impressed. He notes that his friend the rabbit speaks only one language. But still the other animals are standoffish.
Then they find themselves in trouble. The pig's house catches on fire and the rat rushes in with water to put it out. The rabbit almost drowns, and the rat comes to the rescue. Three or four such episodes and the animals start to change their opinion. The rat becomes accepted as one of them.
The book closes with the frog going down one day to see the rat and finds that he has packed his tent into his backpack and is headed off. The frog is surprised and disappointed. The other animals turn out to see him off. He has seen all of the world, but not America, and that's what he wants to see next.
As another reviewer notes, this book is rather preachy. The rat is not very modest in the way he tells the frog how many languages he speaks and how much he can do. The book does not inquire whatsoever into why the pig, rabbit and duck might hold the opinions that they do. And it has the rat rather ungraciously remind them as he departs that the "dirty, lazy, dishonest" rat won't be with them anymore. The book may be a morality tale about prejudice, but as far as manners go, it comes up short.
In real life we live close to a bunch of Gypsies. They have taken up residence in abandoned houses along the right-of-way for a new Metro line. The houses are run down, unheated, and unkempt with trash and laundry in the yards. The Gypsies earn their living collecting plastic and old bottles and selling flowers in the city. They have large families. The neighborhood mothers move their kids elsewhere when the Gypsies show up on the beach. The mom-and-pop storekeepers don't trust them and treat them with a certain disrespect. Yet, I have not heard of any theft. We often sit next to them on in the back of the little bus to our neighborhood. One will ask me politely about my son, and I ask about her (seven) kids. Our population of Gypsies does not so closely fit the mold of social parasites. Though none appear trilingual (we converse in Russian; none even try English) and they are materially poor, they mind their own business.
I think that my son is better served by learning about the world as it is, seeing it, as the frog does, with his own eyes. But, yet he should not discount the opinions of pigs, ducks and rabbits. Most such opinion is based on some life experience. I am happy this story is in book format, so we can talk about it, and that he is reading it at home rather than getting the story in a school setting. It needs some perspective.
The vocabulary, pacing, and illustrations are good. I am glad that my son enjoys the book and that he can relate it to the world around him.
