Gaston the green-nosed alligator, the loveable hero of the famous Cajun Night Before Christmas, leads young readers through the alphabet, and in the process gives them a clever and practical lesson in Cajun French. James Rice has re-illustrated this volume of Cajun Alphabet in full color, making it a beautiful as well as educational addition to any child's library. Using a combination of poetry and delightful art, Rice follows Gaston's educational experience from "A is amour, an expression of love, your heart flutter flutters like the wings of a dove" through "Z is zapote, a hard wooden shoe, stuff it with moss to make it fit true," giving readers-children and adults alike-basic yet comprehensive lessons in Cajun culture.
