Synopsis

Lapin, the clever rabbit, his friend Bouki, the slow-witted wolf, and their friends encounter adventure, competition, and romance throughout the bayous of Louisiana in this collection of entertaining and educational tales. In The Escape, Lapin has a playful adventure as he tries to outwit a very hungry bear. La Poussiere (The Dust) tells how Bouki, Lapin, and others compete to win the hand of the most beautiful bride in the entire swamp. Compere Crapauds Ride reveals the cleverness of the toad determined to do anything to marry the girl he loves. Drawing on the rich oral tradition of the Cajun people, Cajun Folktales collects six of the best childrens stories that have been passed down from generation to generation. Told in the tradition of Brer Rabbit, these stories are accompanied by the beautiful illustrations of Patrick Soper.
