You can't catch me--I'm full of cayenne! Baked in a skillet with two chilies for the eyes, a peppercorn for the nose, a link of boudin sausage for the mouth, and a large dash of cayenne pepper for extra spice, the Cajun cornbread boy runs through the bayou, sprinting past hungry animals who would like to sample such a tasty treat. When an artful alligator tries to trick the boy into becoming dinner, he's in for one really spicy surprise. Told in the charming language of an experienced storyteller, this colorful romp through Cajun country is perfect for children of all ages looking for a flavorful twist to a familiar fable.
