About the Author

Mary Alice Fontenot (1910-2003) was born in Arcadia Parish and worked on her grandfather’s Bayou Tigre farm in her youth. Fontenot spent thirty-five years as a journalist for multiple Louisiana publications and had a career as a kindergarten teacher. Named a Louisiana Legend by Louisiana Public Broadcasting and a Living Legend by the Arcadian Museum, she also received the 1998 Acadiana Arts Council Lifetime Achievement Award. Fontenot wrote eighteen books for the Clovis Crawfish Series.

Clovis, New Mexico, resident Scott R. Blazek won the 1993 prize for designing a five-dollar coin featuring James Madison in the US Mint’s Bill of Rights Coins Set. He illustrated half of the books in the Clovis Crawfish Series.

Notwithstanding The Horn Book Co. reviews of this entire series, which range between merely unflattering and truly negative, I have found a number of the books in this series to be entertaining and educational. We are not from Louisiana and have no personal ties to the place. That being said, the stories are charming, and the introduction to French (Cajun style) is educational. Finally, I must take issue with the charge that the Etienne Escargot book lacks appeal for children; my four-year old loves the story.
