Fanfou, a loveable elephant from France, stars in this tale about his unlikely adventures visiting Louisiana. The story is told in French using common phrases and key terms such as directions, emotions, colors, and animals. Basic French speakers will hear the action unfold as Fanfou scores a touchdown for the Saints, discovers oil in Lafayette, and rides in the Angola rodeo.
Fanfou’s new friends escort him to les villes and the bayous, showing him the best of Louisiana’s culture. He listens to the traditional jazz, catches poisson in the Gulf of Mexico, and dances a Cajun fais do-do. Fanfou discovers the best the state has to offer: its music, its traditions, and, of course, its people.
