Description - Clovis Crawfish and Michelle Mantis by Mary Alice Fontenot

Clovis Crawfish and all his friends return in a new bayou tale. Michelle Mantis, an ugly old insect with an enormous appetite, visits the swamp home of Clovis and his friends. Her voracious appetite alarms Cloviss friends, as Michelle eats and eats until she can scarcely move. But when Michelle tumbles into the mud, Clovis must rally the other swamp creatures to help. The book includes a song with lyrics in English and French, and a pronunciation guide for Cajun expressions. The colorful illustrations by Scott Blazek bring all the bayou denizens to life. With a combined total of 56,000 copies in print, the nine books chronicling the adventures of Clovis Crawfish are perennial favorites in Louisiana and elsewhere.
