Annotations for Petite Rouge : A Cajun Red Riding Hood


Baker & Taylor
Adorning himself with a duck bill, frilly underwear, and flippers, Big Bad Gator Claude sets out to trick Petite Rouge into becoming his dinner, yet she is too smart for him and so, with the help of some extra strong Cajun hot sauce, teaches him a lesson he won't soon forget.

Big Bad Gator Claude will do anything to have a taste of Petite Rouge...even if it means putting on a duck bill, flippers, and frilly underwear. He presents no match for the spunky heroine and her quick-thinking cat TeJean, though, as they use some strong Cajun hot sauce to teach Claude a lesson he will never forget!

The combination of hilarious rhyme and exaggerated art creates a highly original retelling of the classic fairy tale. A pronunciation guide/glossary accompanies a tempting dialect that begs to be read aloud or acted out again and again. This is Little Red Riding Hood as she's never been seen before: Cajun and ducky.
