What's Gator Gumbo About

Publisher Summary

A new take on The Little Red Hen — Cajun style Poor Monsieur Gator is getting old and is moving so slow he can’t catch himself a taste of possum or otter, or even a whiff of skunk. Day after day those animals tease and taunt him until, finally, he decides to cook up some gumbo just like Maman used to make. But who will help him boil, catch, sprinkle, and chop? Certainly not rude Mademoiselle Possum, ornery Monsieur Otter, or sassy Madame Skunk. But when the gumbo is ready, they’re more than eager to enjoy the result of Gator’s hard work and as they run to get a taste - “Slurp! Slip! Plop! Them animals go into the pot.” “Mmm-mmm,” says Monsieur Gator. “Now, this is gumbo just like Maman used to make.” Illustrated with wit and whimsy, this mischievous tale will have young readers laughing out loud.
