Big Bad Gator Claude will do anything to have a taste of Petite Rouge...even if it means putting on a duck bill, flippers, and frilly underwear. He presents no match for the spunky heroine and her quick-thinking cat TeJean, though, as they use some strong Cajun hot sauce to teach Claude a lesson he will never forget!

The combination of hilarious rhyme and exaggerated art creates a highly original retelling of the classic fairy tale. A pronunciation guide/glossary accompanies a tempting dialect that begs to be read aloud or acted out again and again. This is Little Red Riding Hood as she's never been seen before: Cajun and ducky.

Too much dialect for me to enjoy the written parts.

A brilliant take on an old story; the language is fun to read and learn...we automatically developed some cool accents. A very fun book, with wonderful illustrations!

Very fun to read aloud to kids - practice up on your cajun accent!
Love the illustrations, especially of Claude the gator when he dresses up as grandma duck. A big hit with my 3-year-old, and my husband.

Red Riding Hood story using ducks and gators. Told in rhyme - heavy dialect. Fun watercolor illustrations tell story.
