Description

Little Pierre may be small, but he's got more marbles rolling round in his itty-bitty noggin than his four big, lazy brothers heaped together. Yet they just call him runt and ignore him. Course, when the good-for-nothing brothers flub their attempt to rescue a damsel in distress from the Swamp Ogre, it falls on Little Pierre to rescue" them." Will this half-pint hero find out that his brothers were right all along--brains don't beat brawn?
Robert D. San Souci and David Catrow, the creators of the acclaimed "Cinderella Skeleton, " serve up a Cajun-spiced Tom Thumb tale straight from the Louisiana bayou.
"Includes a glossary of Cajun words and an author's note about the origin of the story."
