This Mother Goose-goes-to-the-swamp audio has authentic Cajun characters, ranging from Oyster Man and Jacques and Jill to Petite Rouge Riding Hood. This glimpse into south Louisiana’s Cajun traditions is filled with unique dialect and ongoing humor. Familiar rhymes such as “To Market,” “Pat-A-Cake” and “Little Boy Blue” are flavored with the same cultural flair.
Wilson’s version of these familiar stories includes little Jacques Horner eating a crawfish pie, a shrimper’s wife being chased by three blind possums, and Goldilocks in the home of a crawfish family. Justin Wilson’s version of these traditional tales is tailored to the bayou and its traditions.
