Overview

Clovis Crawfish and his friends are found on the bayou once again in this tale of newfound friendship and love. Clovis saves Fédora Field Mouse from drowning and helps rid the bayou of a menacing character.

Clovis Crawfish must build a new mud house when his old one washes away with the rain. Before he can begin, Théodore Turtle informs Clovis that their new neighbor, Madame Rat Musqué, has started to build her own house across the bayou. Théodore also warns Clovis that muskrats eat crawfish. However, before they can deal with Madame Rat Musqué, Clovis spots the helpless Fédora Field Mouse floating down the bayou.

What will happen to Fédora? How will Clovis survive with Madame Rat Musqué so close by? When will Clovis ever be able to rebuild his home?

The answers to all of these questions, and a few surprises, lie in the pages of this entertaining story.

The lavish color illustrations make this tale appealing to children ages five through eight.

Mary Alice Fontenot, recognized as the children's author on Cajun culture, created the wetland characters of Clovis and his friends more than thirty years ago.

No stranger to the series, Scott R. Blazek has illustrated nine Clovis Crawfish books.

When Fâedora Field Mouse is swept away during a hard rain on the Louisiana bayou, Clovis Crawfish and his friends come to her rescue.
