Based on a traditional song adapted by this nationally acclaimed Louisiana singer/songwriter, this rhyming picture book tells of various Louisiana fare such as red beans, filé gumbo, baguettes, and alligator stew. Readers are also introduced to the pirogue, a small, flat-bottom wooden boat used by locals to traverse the local bayous and wetlands. References to these Louisiana favorites will offer children a tour of the Pelican State's diverse and unique traditions.
