Beloved author Mary Alice Fontenot introduces the Texas native Andrew Armadillo to the Clovis Crawfish Series. Andrew is unfamiliar with Cajun phrases, making him an outsider on the bayou. His loud voice and large size frighten the creatures. However, when one of Cloviss friends becomes stuck in a tall thorn bush, Andrews height helps him to come to a safe and speedy rescue. Illustrator Scott R. Blazek joins Fontenot yet again for this fun story about friendship and Cajun culture. With the inclusion of sheet music for the Cajun song Fais Pas des Betises, Cajun phrases, and definitions and pronunciations of Cajun words, this book is perfect for Cajun families and Cajun enthusiasts alike.
