Legend of Papa Noel: A Cajun Christmas (Legend) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the deep swampy bayou of Louisiana, Santa Claus is known as Papa Noel and rides a boat pulled by eight alligators with a snowy white one named Nicollette in the lead. This witty Christmas tale rich in folklore and legend is nominated for SIBA Childrens Book of the Year.

Synopsis:

Around the world Santa Claus has many names. But in a deep, swampy bayou of Louisiana, he's known as Papa Noë l. In such a hot and humid place, there can be no sleds or reindeer, so Papa Noë l rides the river in a boat that's pulled by eight alligators, with a snowy white one named Nicollette in the lead. On this particular Christmas Eve, it's so foggy on the river that even Nicollette's magical glowing-green eyes may not be enough to guide Papa Noë l. The alligators are tired, grumpy and bruised from banging into cypress trees, and Papa is desperate to get all the gifts to the little children. Well, "quicker than a snake shimmies down the river," the clever Cajun people come up with a solution that saves the day. A colorfully inventive Christmas tale, Papa Noë l is a lesson in fast thinking, as well as a witty introduction to a part of America that's rich in folklore and legend.
