Gold Gato, July 9, 2014 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
Old World European fairytale meets New World Creole revision = eggs talking. Two daughters and their mother live in the backwoods of Louisiana. Of course, one child is good and one is bad, and the mother is nothing to write home about (whew). As we think we're heading toward a Grimm Cinderella path, the backwoods take over and an old woman appears. While you can anticipate where the story is headed, there are some surprises along the way. The folktale itself is thought to have been brought over by the French Acadians (Cajuns) and it developed with a Gullah remix. The text by San Souci is wonderful and the illustrations are from the great Jerry Pinkney.

Book Season = Autumn (two-headed cows)
