In this first of two stories on this audio CD, Clovis and his friends must help Bidon Box Turtle, a Mississippi land turtle, cross the bayou without getting his hat wet! "Kuk-kuk-kwak-kuk-kwak-kuk!" What could possibly make a sound like that in the Louisiana bayou? Find out in the second story. Whatever it is, it wakes up Clovis Crawfish from a long nap. Whatever it is, it frightens his friends, Christophe Cricket, Lizette Lizard, and Rene Rainfrog. The two stories are narrated in both English and French.
