As the denizens of the bayou--the heron, a raccoon, a bullfrog, and the crawfish--urge young Boudin to “run, Boudin, run!,” faster and faster they go back to his porch. The repetitive refrain and sim-plea language pair with clever illustrations to capture the imagination of children of all ages. Will that ‘gator catch Boudin? Who gets to eat the catfish? Find out in this thrilling adventure for beginning readers!
