About this title


Compere Lapin, a scrawny, cunning, no-good Louisiana rabbit, tangles with a wildcat, robs an alligator, grapples with a grizzly, and risks his own beloved long and fluffy tail, all in an attempt to get bigger.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4. Doucet has done a first-rate job adapting these three Creole-Cajun folktales. All involve Compere Lapin, a tricky rabbit counterpart to Br'er Rabbit. The stories flow smoothly and have a natural south Louisiana cadence, making them excellent choices for storytelling and reading aloud. Catrow has created a memorable protagonist: a cocky, bright-eyed rabbit with enormous ears. The other animals are also drawn in a lively, colorful cartoon style with plenty of humor and character?perfect complements to the narrative. An introduction places Compere Lapin in the spectrum of American folklore and lists the original collectors of the tales. This book offers a slice of folklore from a unique culture. Perhaps more of these tales will be published, for "rumor has it...that Lapin's still conjuring up tricks and giving dee-mon-stree-ations of Trouble all up and down that Louisiana bayou."?Judith Constantinides, East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
