Praise for James Rice and Cajun Night Before Christmas®:
“Set in a Louisiana bayou and told in Cajun dialect—‘e chirren been nezzle/Good snug on de flo’—the poem has lively illustrations that perfectly suit the unique text.”
“Rice is especially good with facial expressions, whether they are on a Texas jack rabbit, a longhorn steer, a dusty cowboy, or the green and long-nosed alligator named Gaston.”
It’s the night before Christmas in a tiny shack on the Louisiana bayou, and Santa Claus, with his eight friendly alligators and toy-laden skiff, is on his way. Written in lively Cajun accents, the best-selling Cajun Night Before Christmas® is a beloved holiday classic. Now, with this innovative coloring book, children of all ages can put their own colorful spin on the story. These brilliant illustrations are sure to inspire some wide Cajun smiles.
