"Johnette Downing has shaped a clever just-so story out of the flora and fauna and mud of south Louisiana. There are plenty of smiles and giggles, and readers will even pick up a few Cajun expressions along the way."

One hot and humid day on the bayou, back when Crab and Crawfish were still best friends, Crawfish was hungry, and as luck would have it, Crab had just gone fishing. Not only hungry, Crawfish was also lazy. Thinking only about himself-only about his empty belly, as a matter of fact-Crawfish decided to trick his friend out of his lunch.
But Crawfish had taken advantage of Crab's good nature one time too many, and soon he learns about the consequences of cheating his friend. This cute cautionary tale, filled with Johnette Downing's signature Louisiana flavor and fresh collage-style illustrations, includes a glossary of Cajun phrases and a list of crawfish fun facts.
