Madame Laurent is a very energetic and engaging FLE teacher (French as a foreign language). Nevertheless, her primary school students have recently been staring out of the window during her classes. The reason for this is a delightful red squirrel who likes to sit on her balcony and eat the hazelnuts found in the vicinity. The squirrel has become something of a class mascot and the opportunity to learn some new French vocabulary. Madame Laurent and her students have named him (or perhaps her!) Eugène.
