Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Clovis Crawfish and his cohorts return for another adventure in the Louisiana bayou. In this story, Lizette Lizard introduces her friends to her petite cousine Echo Gecko, who is so shy that she can only repeat what she hears. Lizette explains that the little lizard would like to learn to speak French. All of the local animals are willing to help, and Christophe Cricket even sings a French song, Je peux parler francais (the music and an English translation are included). A sudden rainstorm drives all of the creatures to seek shelter and, when they emerge, they realize that Echo Gecko has disappeared. Clovis discovers that she has been captured by a mallow blossom and pinches the flower, which releases her. By the end of the story, Echo Gecko has learned a new language and made some new friends. The distinctive personality of each of the characters comes through in the colorful cartoon artwork. A pronunciation guide and translations for all of the Cajun French words used in the text are appended. A good choice for fans of the series, this book could also lead to discussion of a unique habitat.-Kristin de Lacoste, South Regional Public Library, Pembroke Pines, FL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
