I have found a number of the books in this series to be entertaining and educational. We are not from Louisiana and have no personal ties to the place. That being said, the stories are charming, and the introduction to French (Cajun style) is educational. My only criticism of the 'Orphan Zo-Zo' book is that the pronounciation guide in the back of the back uses International pronouciation codes, rather than English transliterations, and I suspect many readers will be puzzled by the former. Most of the books in the series use transliterations, however.
