Join Denise as she visits her grandmother in the Louisiana bayou for a school vacation she'll never forget! Grandma, a wildlife rehabilitator, shares her knowledge with Denise as they explore the mysterious bayou. Together they meet myriad creatures from alligators to bullfrogs, and Denise makes friends with a fox, an owl, and a deer! After learning the valuable lesson that wild animals must be free, Denise returns to the city with a new-found wisdom and a very special treasure. Vibrant, realistic illustrations let readers experience the busy bayou and the joyful lifestyle of Cajun and Creole culture.
