    #16 I know exactly what you mean…such a little show off!! She’s all “lookit me!! I am only 5 and I speak ze French!!”

  2. queenlizo says:

    Wow. Smart kid and her parents must read to her a lot. She uses the “passe simple” a lot, a past tense only used in writing.

    And your lesson in French is done for the day. ;-)

    “…et des pouvoirs magiques!” That was wonderful.

    Seriously adorable… but as an American who lives in France, it cracks me up that this little girl is already creating stories with a classically French plot… replete with oppressed “animals who can’t pay and have nothing to eat,” frightening trees, and a suicidal hippo. It’s almost surprising she didn’t have a cigarette in hand, sending wistful smoke skyward.

    P.S. I’m kidding of course… and yes, still find her very cute.

    Never mind that: she’s all over the subjunctive tense too.

    I favor the gas permeable, extended wear, but that is a matter of personal preference.

    I’m with you, very much, on the sentiment, though.

    @Mojave: actually, if you go on Vimeo, there’s a video of her saying the few words she knows in English, it’s real cute too:

    Yeah, great, super cute and all…but what happened to the monkeys?!? Did they find their way home?

    must find part II

    OMG! She is so cute! That was quite a story! lol! Good thing there were subtitles because I don’t speak french. She is so adorable though!

    I smell…SCREENPLAY!!! would totally pay to see the film version of that story. We gonna hook that kid up with Michel Gondry.

  16. Takuan says:

    I shall keep her in a sphere of adamantine crystal, illuminated from within to dispel the Stygian chill of the deeps, an ornament to grace my lonely vigil at the Bottommost Gates.

    i’m sure she said that the lion said that it was time to EAT the hippo, not for him to be dead in heaven.

  21. zikman says:

    After watching this Angel and HeroHa, it makes me wonder why American kiddos are so lame…

  27. freetardzero says:

    mangez les bébés….wheee! Best line EVAR!

  28. curtismayfield says:

    wow she’s mindblowing.

  29. Secret_Life_of_Plants says:

    Thing is, all the children are beautiful in France.

  30. Mycroft says:

    Good lord, that child should be locked up before her cuteness reaches some kind of critical mass and destroys the planet.

  31. Sara M says:

    Also, she [according to her mom] accidentally does the dramatic chipmunk here:

    Amelie is one of the greatest movies ever.

  35. kkretsch says:

    I like the story title “Amelie, Jr.”, it could really be her. Connected souls in some way.

  36. Irene Delse says:

    @ Anonymous #38: Well, that little kid is a native French speaker. ;-)

    Super cutesy cute. And a lovely terrifying story. Watch out, Stephen King, the next generation of storytellers arrives…

    Wow. As a native speaker of French, I can certify that this girl is positively cute as heck. Wow, I’m ready to have kids!

  38. hanzith says:

    someone should totally animate this.

  39. winkybb says:

    She’s so clever, what with knowing a foreign language that age and all.

    “It’s like they have a different word for everything!” – S. Martin

    Reminds me of another line in one of those Matrix 2 movies::

    When you curse in french it’s like wiping your rear with silk (not the exact quote mind you).
