From the Inside Flap:

"Children will howl with laughter as les trois cochons (three little pigs) outwit the wily loup-garou (wolf) in this Cajun twist to the classic tale." -LACajunStuff.com
Near Big Mamou in Southwest Louisiana, Mam�re Cochon must send her three little pigs, 'Ti Joe, 'Ti Claude, and 'Ti Fr�re, out into the great big world to seek their fortunes. As they prepare to go their separate ways, the brothers agree to watch out for the loup-garou, who's been planning a cochon du lait for as long as they can remember.
How would the brothers make out on their own? Well, as 'Ti Joe always says, "Vouloir c'est pouvoir" (where there's a will, there's a way). But will they be able to avoid the hungry loup-garou? Well, if any three pigs ever had le savoir-faire (the know-how) to outwit the cunning wolf, their names would have to be 'Ti Joe, 'Ti Claude, and 'Ti Fr�re, I garontee! As a little lagniappe (something extra), the author has included 'Ti Joe's special recipe for Grillades and Grits, the classic breakfast dish. Bon app�tit!
