A great book by Candace Fleming that has all of the house saying “Just Like Maman used to make” anytime we eat anything that tastes good. The kids love the book and the art really compliments the story. Anything by Candace Fleming is worth a read and a buy! Her ability to storytell using history and, in this case, culture is incredible! Very grateful for her books!

I read this book to my classroom. It is a new take on a classic book. Students like the accent.

The language used (presumably authentic for the region) is very rich and it really sets the tone for the whole book.

This is a version of the Little Red Hen where the not-helping animals are really rude instead of just lazy - and they get what they deserve when, after begging for Just One Taste, they fall right in the pot!

A few notes that struck me as odd, though many kids would probably not notice. First, the animals go into the pot without being skinned or even taking off their clothes. Uh, ew? And second, they fall in of their own accord - the gator doesn't help them in any way, they're just that greedy. That's a little weird to me. I understand why it was done, but I would've expected some sign that the alligator pushed them or something. *shrugs*

Really funny book, nice set-up to a great ending, though.

Very funny story told in a "cajun" sort of way. My 2 yr old listens to this book all the way through and loves it. Great story for anyone just looking for a funny book for their family.

Great book to add to our grandson's library.

Wonderful adaptation of the traditional story of karma biting those who expect something for nothing, but instead of not just receiving some of the gator's gumbo....the other animals become a part of it!

Being from Louisiana I love to find books to read to my little ones that have to do with Louisiana and things in our culture.. I love this book as much as my little ones do.. Very cute critters and a cunning alligator, what's not to love about it!!!
Both my 3 year old son and my 7 year old cousin love this book so it covers a lot of age ground. You don't have to be good at accents to read this book because the wounderful choice of words turn any readers voice into "bayou speak". I've gotten several copies to give as gifts and in all a couple of pages have blurred type (obviously not intentional) so that is my only reservation in recommending it.
