Rockin' the Bayou Down in Louisiana! : We're a Possum Family Band, Hardback Book

Rockin' the Bayou Down in Louisiana! : We're a Possum Family Band Hardback

Illustrated by Fanny Berthiaume



Every Saturday night at the Fais Dodo Thibaudeau, a suave young possum with a Zorro-like moustache takes the stage with his dobro to lead the band.

In the audience, a pretty, doe-eyed possum falls for his charms.

But just who could these plucky marsupials be? Mama and Papa Poss tell the story of how they first met and where their glory days as a musical duo began!

Take a trip to the bayou in this side-splitting, toe-tapping tale that pays homage to Louisiana's Cajun and Zydeco music traditions.

Rockin' the Bayou Down in Louisiana! is the first story in the We're a Possum Family Band series, which follows Mama and Papa Poss on their travels that bring them across North America to the birthplaces of Cajun, jazz, country, rock'n'roll, blues, and traditional Quebecois music.

At the end of each story, explanatory notes delve into the key figures, instruments and customs behind each genre.

The book includes a QR code to access the narrated story and songs online.
