Princess Praline, a beautiful Persian cat, overhears a conversation by her owners about the newest fashion craze to hit New Orleans...shiny red alligator shoes. Knowing that could only mean trouble for her alligator friends down in Bayou Black, Princess Praline and her best friend Mint Julep, set out one night to warn Garfield Gator, Governor of Bayou Black, of the impending trouble. Along the way, they meet various swamp friends who help them make their journey from the City of New Orleans to the swamp lands of Bayou Black to warn the alligators.
I am 88 years old from Pearl River, Louisiana, located on the edge of the Honey Island Swamp. I have 6 children, 11 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. I love telling stories using local swamp animals and a mixture of French words, come alive in the minds of young children.
