While fishing on the bayou, Maurice sees a little blue crawfish drop a watch, follows him down a crawfish hole, and embarks on an adventure reminiscent of Lewis Carroll's Alice's adventures in Wonderland.

I had the privilege of meeting Wes Thomas at a book signing in Madison, WI where he is currently a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin. He is extremely talented, not only writing this charming children's story but also doing all of the beautiful watercolor illustrations. His illustrations match his text perfectly. I think any child would enjoy the story and all the wonderful animals that appear throughout the book. He does something that is so important for an author to do! He writes about what he knows, his Cajun, New Orleans background. In so doing he introduces all of his readers to bits and pieces of the Cajun lifestyle.

This story is a wonderful cajun/Louisiana alternative to Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland. Not only is the story great, but his artwork is amazing. You should check out Phil and His Fabulous Feathers too. He didn't write this on, but again his artwork is beautiful. I heard that he is working on a series now with another author. This guy is going places. He was born in New Orleans, LA, but now lives in Wisconsin, I think. His has his Bachelor's degree from Southeastern Louisiana University and his Master's from University of Wisconsin at Madison. Very talented author and illustrator. Look for his future works. This story would be great for teacher's to use in the classroom at any level. It would be a great Christmas or any occasion gift!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
