"I don? know fo? sure if dat story is true,

But down where de Cajuns live on de bayou,

When dey tell dem stories, dey shore like to talk

About dat boy Jacques and his magic beanstalk."

You know the classic story of Jack and the Beanstalk, but you?ve never heard it like this before. Told in Cajun dialect with a distinct bayou flair, this book is perfect for reading aloud. There is even a glossary and pronunciation guide to help The creators of Petite Rouge (which Publishers Weekly called ?a sassy, spicy outing?) once again deliver a hilarious twist on a well-known fairy tale.
