“Pass” a good time in Acadiana in this tour of Cajun country and culture! The sights, sounds, and smells of all things Cajun two-step off the page, introduced letter by letter in alphabetical order. From the alligators in the bayou to the stars of the zydeco stage, the food, music, literature, and language unique to the people of southern Louisiana are delightfully rhymed and beautifully illustrated. From the smallest details of daily life to the fantastical “fifolet” of Cajun folklore, the spirit and the spice of Cajun country infuse these pages.
Author Rickey Pittman includes maps of Acadiana, a graph showing the concentration of Cajun speakers by parish, and a glossary of terms. On each page, artist Alexis Braud hides a pelican just waiting to be found by emerging readers.
