Rate this:
Down on the banks of a Louisiana bayou lives a no-good, no-count, do-nothing rascal of a rabbit named Compere Lapin. He's scrawny and small, so he has to be extra cunning, clever, and crafty to get his way -- and no creature is as good at being bad as Lapin. Who else would tangle with a wildcat, rob an alligator, and grapple with a grizzly, all in a foolhardy attempt to get bigger? Or risk his beloved long fluffy tale just for the fun of hornswoggling Compere Alligator? Why, he'll even hoodwink his future father-in-law to try and win his own true, love. The truth is, as long as there are fools to be fooled, Lapin figures he might as well do the fooling. And the fortunate readers of and listeners to these three spicy and hilariously illustrated tales will soon discover that they wouldn't want it any other way.
