According to legend, d'Loup Garou (pronounced loo-guh-ROO) is a Cajun werewolf that dwells in the Louisiana swamps and howls at the full moon. His favorite meal is a badly behaved child--and Feliciana's been in a snit all day.
When she cuts off her pigtail, that's the last straw. She's banned from attending the fais do-do with her family that evening, and left at home with her brother Ti-Jacques. After dark, she thinks she hears the legendary swamp monster d'Loup Garou . . . or is her brother playing tricks on her? Feliciana's sassiness and self-confidence make her an appealing heroine in this cautionary tall tale. Its use of authentic Cajun dialect inspires a hilariously fun read-aloud experience.
