A Catfish Tale: A Bayou Story of the Fisherman and His Wife by Whitney Stewart (Author), Gerald Guerlais (Illustrator) is a new book, a Southern take on the Fisherman and His Wife fairy tale. As always, the illustrations say more than I can..
Deep in the bayou, a Cajun fisherman named Jack catches a magic fish that offers to grant wishes in exchange for being set free. Jack doesn't have a lot of wishes, but his wife Jolie sure does--for a mansion, a paddleboat, fame and fortune! With each wish, all the fish says is "Ah, tooloulou--if that ain't the easiest thing to do." But when Jolie wants to be crowned Mardi Gras queen, have things gone too far?
