When her grand-mère comes down wit' de flu, this Cajun Little Red knows what she has to do.  With her witty cat, TeJean, she sets off in a pirogue to bring Grand-mère some gumbo.  Who should she meet upon the way, but that big ol' swamp gator, Claude!  Mean ol' Claude may want to gobble up Petite Rouge, but she and TeJean have a better idea

This version of an old favorite is a great way to expose children to a different dialect, cajun culture, and entertaining enough to keep adults involved. If the words are pronounced as written, a reader can't help but have a reasonably enthusiastic cajun accent. It also provides a refreshing experience in reading phonemically for adults. The humor is quick and light and the illustrations are a feast of eye candy (i.e. Mona Lisa as a Goose).
