by A. Benton Phillips
This book describes life in the Cajun town of Thibodaux, Louisiana, during and shortly after WWII.
A Cajun grandfather who can do magic tricks, tell tall tales, and can supposedly talk to animals has his grandchildren and their friends in the neighborhood beguiled. He is insulating the kids from the tragedy of war and instilling a sense of pride in being a Cajun. He also has half the town backing up his lies and the other half trying to get mentioned in his hilarious stories.About the Author
