Overview

"Children will howl with laughter as les trois cochons (three little pigs) outwit the wily loup-garou (wolf) in this Cajun twist to the classic tale." -LACajunStuff.com
Near Big Mamou in Southwest Louisiana, Mamère Cochon must send her three little pigs, 'Ti Joe, 'Ti Claude, and 'Ti Frère, out into the great big world to seek their fortunes. As they prepare to go their separate ways, the brothers agree to watch out for the loup-garou, who's been planning a cochon du lait for as long as they can remember.
How would the brothers make out on their own? Well, as 'Ti Joe always says, "Vouloir c'est pouvoir" (where there's a will, there's a way). But will they be able to avoid the hungry loup-garou? Well, if any three pigs ever had le savoir-faire (the know-how) to outwit the cunning wolf, their names would have to be 'Ti Joe, 'Ti Claude, and 'Ti Frère, I garontee! As a little lagniappe (something extra), the author has included 'Ti Joe's special recipe for Grillades and Grits, the classic breakfast dish. Bon appétit!
