The Cajun Cornbread Boy – By Dianne de Las Casas

Dianne de Las Casas adds an alligator, a bayou, and some cayenne pepper to her “spiced up” version of the beloved “Gingerbread Boy” story! Children will find this book very humorous, whether or not they are already familiar with the original.  A helpful glossary, containing French vocabulary, may be found at the end of the story, as well as a recipe for “Southern Cornbread”!  The illustrations are large but not very eye-catching.
