Clovis Crawfish and company make a new friend in Paillasse Poule d'Eau. The bayou creatures enjoy learning all about their new friend. Two of the first things they find out is that his name, Paillasse, means "clown" in French, while Poule d'Eau means "water chicken."

From the Inside Flap:

It is almost fall on the bayou and Clovis is enjoying a nap in his mudhouse when he is awakened by a loud "Kuk-kuk-kwak-kuk-kwak-kuk!"

What could it be?

None of Clovis's friends know. All they know is that they are scared!

Ah, but Clovis knows what this loud, funny-looking bird is. "Don't worry," he tells his friends. "That's a poule d'eau, a water chicken."

This unusual bird not only looks and sounds funny, but he has a funny name, too. His name is Paillasse, which means "clown" in French.

Paillasse quickly becomes friends with all of the bayou creatures, but the fun is soon interrupted. Clothilde Catfish is trapped inside a hollow tree stump! Will Clovis, Paillasse, and their friends be able to save Clothilde?

Mary Alice Fontenot, recognized as the children's author on Cajun culture, created the wetland characters of Clovis and his friends more than thirty years ago.

No stranger to the series, Scott R. Blazek has illustrated six Clovis Crawfish books.
