According to legend handed down for many generations, either directly from French settlers to Louisiana or from the French-Canadian immigrants, the Rougarou (Cajun werewolf), cannot count to 13.
So when parents on the bayou scare their children with the creature, they also tell them that if thirteen stones are placed across a doorway he won’t enter until he can count them.
Since he only has ten fingers and toes how will he count that high? In this charming board book for little ones, Cajun artist and author Alexis Braud uses her unique style to befuddle the hapless Rougarou as she helps children learn to count better than that werewolf can!
