Clovis Crawfish and his friends return in a beautifully illustrated story of friendship and unity.
Clovis must: save his friend, Fédora Field Mouse and her children; deal with Madame Rat Musque, who likes to eat crawfish; and build a new house for himself. And children complain when they have math and spelling homework on the same night!
About the Author
Mary Alice Fontenot is best known as the children’s author on Cajun culture. She created the famous wetland characters of Clovis Crawfish and his friends more than thirty years ago—and they still find exciting new adventures. In addition to this series, Mrs. Fontenot wrote several other children’s books including Mardi Gras in the Country and Star Seed. She also worked as a newspaperwoman for thirty-five years and as a kindergarten teacher for some time. Her dedication to children and to her art earned her the 1998 Acadiana Arts Council Lifetime Achievement Award. Mrs. Fontenot died in 2003 at the age of ninety-three.
