Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Augusta Scattergood
Clovis Catfish and his swamp buddies have returned. Although Louisiana children have enjoyed these books for generations, the series, which began in 1961, was thought to have ended when its creator recently died in her 90s. This latest picture book, written by Mary Alice Fontenot's daughter and based on a manuscript discovered after Mrs. Fontenont's death, continues the swamp creatures' story. As the other wetland animals learn that Lisette Lizard's twin sister is lost, they pull together. Clever Clovis organizes the bayou creatures into a search party, and everyone learns that teamwork usually results in happy outcomes. Opportunities to find all the animals who cleverly don sunbonnets, hair bows and sunglasses in these colorful pictures make this a perfect read-aloud. The story is charming, and the illustrations are bright, cheerful, and help to tell the story. A guide to the numerous Cajun French words gives the English equivalent and the English pronunciation.
