Click for availability and more informationThe Cajun Cornbread boy A well loved tale spiced up , by Dianne de Las Casas

A retelling of the Gingerbread Boy---Cajun style! Watercolor illustrations by Marita Gentry bring this humorous fractured fairy tale to life. A spicy cornbread boy made from Grand-mére's old skillet (with two chilies for eyes, a peppercorn nose, and a link of boudin for a mouth) escapes from the oven for a journey through the Louisiana back country. It's a humorous romp through the bayou, with the cornbread boy trying to outrun the hungriest of animals while singing "Run, chér, run, as fast as you can! You can't catch me--I'm full of cayenne." A recipe for southern cornbread adds a dash of fun for readers. A picture book all ages will enjoy.
