About one thousand years ago, the Gaelic word clann, which means children, first came into common usage. The earliest example of checked or striped cloth worn in Scotland is a fragment of two-color “dog-tooth” checked woolen fabric—the so-called “Falkirk tartan”—circa a.d. 235. However, prior to the sixteenth century, there is no evidence of the tartan as it is recognized today.

Poo-yi! There is nothing more foul than the smell of a skunk, except for the harsh words of teasing children. They need to learn that people who are different from themselves are special in their own way, too. In the twelfth book in the Clovis Crawfish series, Mary Alice Fontenot has created a delightful story to emphasize this point to youngsters on and off the bayou.
Clovis Crawfish takes young readers on a journey through the bayou, his first of many adventures. Curious, Clovis begins searching for the reason his bayou is named “Tail of the Frog” and encounters many friends along the way, including Gaston Grasshopper, Lizette Lizard, and Fernand Frog. But friends are not the only creatures Clovis meets on his adventure, for the bayou is also home to many predators. When Clovis meets the hungry M’sieu Blue Jay, he needs to act fast if he wants to save everyone. Risking his own life for his loved ones, Clovis teaches the values of friendship.
Clovis Crawfish, whose adventures have delighted children since 1961, is back again. In this story, now in full color for the first time, the fascinating phenomenon of metamorphosis unfolds to delight young readers.
