    Ok. So last night I was studying for like 6 hours for my final science test.

    And I completely forgot about my french book report.

    And its due tommorow.

    And I suck at french.

    So. I really need someone good at french to translate my three paragraphs into awesome french. And it would be nice if you could look over my critique, which I already did.

    PWEASE

    Resume (summary):

    During a peaceful walk through the forest, Elmer the elephant see a butterfly stuck under a log. Elmer lifts the log, freeing the little butterfly. "I owe you", says the butterfly. Elmer smiles, but since when do butterflies save elephants?
    When Elmer nearly falls off a cliff, the butterfly flies to his rescue, calling Elmer's herd and rescuing him.
    It looks like butterflies DO save elephants!

    Ma fin (my own ending):

    Suddenly, the herd stampedes off, leaving Elmer in the dust. He hears voices talking in the distance. Then, a flash of color speeds past his eyes. It's the butterfly! A gunshot sounds, and the butterfly speeds away. Elmer realizes humans are in the forest, and tramples after the butterfly. Once again, the butterfly saved Elmer, and his entire herd!

    Critique:
    J'ai aimé les images du livre. David McKee est un artiste fantastique, et l'histoire et la fin sont tres amusantes. “Elmer et Papillion” est un livre amusant et simple. Je recommende ce livre à enfants 4-6 ans, mais adultes peut apprécier ce aussie. David McKee est une illustrateur fantastique et un auteur grand.


    Thanks so much to anyone who helps!

    Ok I dont have too much time or i would translate it for you but:

    In the second sentence get rid of the first "et"

    Un livre i believe should be une livre because it is femenine i think a dictionary would def help there.

    Good luck getting er done though, sorry i couldnt be more help.
    P.S. I am not liable for any mistakes :-/
