Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
Each story includes French words and phrases heard in everyday Cajun conversation. Clovis lives in a mud house in Bayou Frog Tail, which strikes him as a strange name, since frogs don't even have tails. Bertile Butterfly is no help in explaining this mystery to him-all she wants to do is flit about and eat flowers.
When inquisitive Clovis finally discovers the answer from Fernand Frog, he doesn't have much time to dwell on it because M'sieu Blue Jay is about to make a meal of his good friend Gaston Grasshopper!
