    It should probably be noted that these dual-language stories are aimed at Russians who want to improve their understanding of English sentence structures -- thus, the translations are as close to literal as grammatically possible, which means they're not necessarily the most ideal models of "natural"-sounding Russian to be imitated by иностранцы, обучающиеся на русском!

    For example, Mrs. Rabbit's remark "I am going out" is rendered as "Я иду наружу" -- which is comprehensible, but would a native speaker actually use that construction?

    (I assume that Я пойду! or even Я пошла! would be the normal thing for a mother-rabbit to say under the circumstances?)

    Even so, these can be used by students of Russian -- just bearing in mind the caveat above.

    Да, я знаю, что для изучающих английский, а в содержание не вчитывалась.
    Спасибо, Роберт, что заметил несуразицу.
