Join Us on an Alligator Hunt and Win a Free Book!


Want to come with me on an alligator hunt?

Cajun Hudson has to be escorted by Cajun Oma who knows the ways of the swamp pretty well.


You have to look carefully for alligators or, as the Cajun French call them, cocodries; even down crawfish holes and cypress knees.


Walk carefully around the edges of bayous and swamps.
One never knows where those sneaky, pesky cocodries might lurk.



Over hill and over dell...


I didn't find any crazy cocodries, MayMay.

But, look! Aunt Annie did!


A baby one!

"Mais jamais! Well, good grief! I ain't too sure about this little critter."

"How sharp are his teeth?"

 "The better to turn you into a sauce piquante and gobble you up."


"Wait a minute. Who's in control of this adventure."

Have you ever run smack-dab into a crazy cocodries (otherwise known as an alligator)?
Did you get a picture of him?

If so, we want to see a picture of your hunt.
Through the month of October put a link to your social media picture in the link-up below.
On November 2nd, we will gobble a winner to receive a free autographed copy of my new children's book Cajun 'Ti Beau and the Cocodries published by regional publisher Pelican Publishing.

Good luck and Remember...Never Trust an Alligator with a Smile! ;-)

Yes, sightings of my picture book count too.  My good friend Alice over near Kaplan, LA shared hers on Instagram.

{Actually a bath toy but it sure looks convincing}
Mr. Cohen made his first alligator hunt and seems to have caught a very big gator.
His Grandma Sue shared this alligator sighting, literally in my very own backyard, though I'm speculating they were in Cameron, LA. ;-)
Here we have Miss Lauren and Miss Annalise sighted an alligator at Southland Fields Airport recently.
And Miss Rita, age 11, took 20 minutes to capture this alligator perfectly on paper.
Who knew cocodries existed in Northwest Illinois? I sure didn't.
Don't you just love it!?!
Margaret saw copies of Cajun 'ti Beau and the Cocodries over at the Beautiful Rip Van Winkle Gardens in New Iberia.  I can't wait to go back there! Simply beautiful!
