“You can’t catch uswe’re buttermilk and cayenne!”
In a spicy and sweet sequel to her best-selling book, The Cajun Cornbread Boy, author Dianne de Las Casas brings to life a new friend for the Cornbread Boythe sticky sweet Buttermilk Biscuit Girl. With her pecan eyes, blueberry nose, candied orange mouth, and a swirl of strawberry perserves for hair, she looks sweet enough to eat! When the two of them run off together to avoid being eaten their adventures echo the classic Southern tale. All’s well that ends well with lots of little Cajun Buttermilk Drops and a recipe to bake up a batch for hungry readers! Illustrator Marita Gentry reprises her charming illustrations for this delightful leap into another adapted folktale.
