"Our of sorts" or "Mémé dans les orties" Reading comprehension (Contemporary French fiction)

(0)
This is a reading comprehension that forms part of a series of 16 worksheets on a contemporary French piece of fiction. The worksheets are aimed at B1+ and B2 levels but could be adapted to higher levels. This reading comprehension can also be used with a listening comprehension (interview of the author) that you can find in my uploads. English title: "Our of sorts" French title: “Mémé dans les orties” Ferdinand Brun hasn’t always been a grumpy old man. Many years ago, he was a grumpy young man. Now he’d much rather spend time with his canine companion, Daisy, than any of his nosy neighbors. But as his behavior becomes increasingly peculiar, his daughter grows concerned and begins to consider moving him into a retirement home. In order to maintain his freedom, Ferdinand must submit to an apartment inspection by his longtime enemy, the iron-fisted concierge, Mrs. Suarez. Unfortunately, he’s never tidied up a day in his life. His neighbors, precocious ten-year-old Juliette and vivacious ninety-two-year-old Beatrice, come to the rescue. And once he lets these two into his life, things will never be the same. After an eighty-three-year reign of grouchiness, Ferdinand may finally learn that it’s never too late to start living.
