Summary

A Texas armadillo tries to fit in on the bayou—and learns a few Cajun words—in the beloved series that provides “plenty of fun” (Publishers Weekly). Texas native Andrew Armadillo is unfamiliar with Cajun phrases, making him an outsider on the bayou. Plus, his loud voice and large size frighten the local creatures! However, when one of Clovis Crawfish’s friends becomes stuck in a tall thorn bush, Andrew’s height just might come in handy . . . Illustrator Scott R. Blazek joins Mary Alice Fontenot yet again to present this fun story about friendship and Cajun culture. With the inclusion of sheet music for the Cajun song “Fais Pas des Bêtises,” Cajun phrases, and definitions and pronunciations of Cajun words, this book is a delight for anyone who’s ever felt like the new kid in town.  Praise for the series   “In Louisiana’s bayou country, Clovis Crawfish is a favorite folk hero of children who have met him in Fontenot’s lively tales. . . . The stories have suspense, lessons in nature lore, French words, and plenty of fun.” —Publishers Weekly   “Stories that are simply fun to read.” —Houston Post
Available since: 12/31/1988.

Claus likes to carry his sack full of dolls, drums, horns, and wooden animals, and walk to the village passing out toys to children along the way. When winter comes, Claus is not able to walk to the village anymore. One day Claus meets magic deer that encourage him to make a sleigh so they can pull him across the snow into the nearby town. When Claus arrives in the village everyone is sleeping. So the deer carry Claus, and the sleigh, to the rooftop so Claus can climb down the chimney to deliver presents. And so it continues that on every Christmas Eve, with a sack full of toys, and reindeer to pull his sleigh, Santa Claus delivers presents to every little girl and boy.
