Description

 

See below for English description.

Accompagnée de sa grand-mère, Madison visite le maquilleur du parc et lui demande de lui dessiner une VRAIE rose sur la joue, ce qu'il fait avec grand soin. Plus tard, alors que la famille est au centre commercial, Madison remarque que la fleur pousse et se multiplie. Inquiète, elle alerte ses parents, mais ces derniers se préoccupent davantage de ce qu'ils voient dans les magasins que de ce qui arrive à leur fille. Il faudra que Madison en parle à sa grand-maman pour enfin obtenir de l'aide... Madison réussira-t-elle à se débarrasser de cette drôle de rose envahissante?

 

 

When Madison's grandma comes for a visit, they go on a trip to see the face painter in the park. Madison doesn't want an ordinary picture on her face, though — not a scary face, not a regal tiger, not a delicate butterfly. Instead she asks the face painter for just one really real rose on her cheek. Then the family goes shopping... and suddenly the rose starts to GROW. "Look at me!" says Madison "That's nice," says her dad as he looks at tools in the hardware store. "That's nice," says her mom as she looks at pots in the kitchen store. And at first Madison is intrigued by her amazing painting. But that all ends when she realizes that she has twenty-five roses growing on her, and there is a leaf coming out her ear!

Grandma is the one who finally listens. They go to the doctor, but the doctor doesn't know what to do. Next they go to the garden store, where the clerk suggests weed killer. Madison refuses. She wants to be kind to the rose, so she buys a huge pot and goes home to take a nap next to it. When she wakes up, the rose is growing in the pot. Grandma takes it home and plants it in the garden, where it waits for its next victim...

Original title: Look at Me!
