“I know a place not very far away
where we can dance with crawfish and play
We can fish on the bayou,
and climb the live oak trees.
I’d be very pleased to show you if you’d
like to come with me.”
The name of this wonderful place is Bayou Town, and it is the home of the Boudreaux family. They are some of the nicest people in the world. Mr. Boudreaux, his wife Miss Marie, and their son Toby love to welcome visitors to Bayou Town.
And then there is the Boudreauxs’ family pet-an alligator named Alfons! He always plays pranks on unsuspecting people in Bayou Town. When he steals somebody’s hat, then everybody knows that it’s time for a game of “Alligator-Keep-Away.”
The animals, people, and games all make Bayou Town a very fun, and very special, place.
