On side one, Clovis and his friends must help Bidon Box Turtle, a Mississippi land turtle, cross the bayou without getting his hat wet!
What could possibly make a sound like that in the Louisiana bayou? Find out on side two. Whatever it is, it wakes up Clovis Crawfish from a long nap. Whatever it is, it frightens his friends, Christophe Cricket, Lizette Lizard, and René Rainfrog.
These two stories are just two in the series and are also available in two separate English books, two separate French books, and one French audiocassette.
