Haunted Bayou: And Other Cajun Ghost Stories
"I think scary stories are important in helping people deal with fear. By experiencing fear in a story where we can control what is happening, we gain skill and experience in dealing with fear in situations we can't control". -- Storyteller and Teacher, Roberta Simpson Brown"Parents are sometimes concerned that violence or gore in scary stories will be bad for children. This is not so: they provide hope through happy endings, and offer the child both positive and negative examples of behavior. With their imaginary violence, scary stories teach moral principles, good social behavior, courage, heroism, and hope". -- Storytellers and Teachers, Richard and Judy YoungChilling but playful tales from the bayous and swamplands of Cajun Iore"This title, along with Reneaux's Cajun Folktales, fills a definite void in American literature". -- School Library Journal"This delightfully entertaining and spooky collection of ghost stories will make the hair stand up on the back of many a reader's neck". -- The Post and Courier
