I enjoyed reading the French translation, but have a couple of minor quibbles; I found the poems and songs lost some of their rhyme and rhythm in French - I think in this case the translator should have favoured preserving the 'flavour' rather than keeping the literal meaning. For example:
'Voila ce que deteste Bilbo Baggins!
Aussi, attention! Attention aux assietes!'
It doesn't exactly have the same punch as:
'That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!
So carefully! Carefully with the plates!'
Also, unaccountably the translator, Francis Ledoux, makes Bilbo 'around 25' rather than 50'ish. There are few enough middle-aged adventure heros, why rob us of one our favourites?
