Excerpt from the story:
The Pansy sisters lived in a green flowerpot below an old oak tree. They shared the pot with Basil, Rosemary and Monkey.
As irmãs Amor-perfeito moravam num vaso azul por debaixo de um velho carvalho. Elas partilhavam o vaso com o Manjericão, a Alecrina e o Macaco.
Rosemary and the Pansy sisters liked picking on Basil. The sisters’ bright colours scared him and he wanted them to be quiet.
A Alecrina e as irmãs Amor-perfeito gostavam de implicar com o Manjericão. As cores brilhantes das irmãs assustavam-no e ele queria que elas estivessem caladas.
