Many years ago, Madame Poulet and Monsieur Roach were such inseparable friends that they shared everything. But that was before chickens and roaches became sworn enemies. Celebrated storyteller Dianne de Las Casas tells what happens when a friend takes advantage of another's generosity in this vibrantly illustrated New Orleans folktale.

Madame Poulet and Monsieur Roach live in a lovely home and agree to share their responsibilities. Everyday Madame Poulet dutifully works for their food, and she doesn't mind taking care of Monseiur Roach when he becomes ill. She doesn't mind at first, that is.

Soon she realizes that her friend has been fooling her all along. While the industrious chicken was working her tail off, the rascally roach was spending his days singing and partying with his friends! With a cluck and a gulp, it doesn't take long for the furious fowl to put an end to her roach problem for good.
