In such a hot and humid place, there can be no sleds or reindeer, so Papa Noël rides the river in a boat that's pulled by eight alligators, with a snowy white one named Nicollette in the lead. On this particular Christmas Eve, it's so foggy on the river that even Nicollette's magical glowing-green eyes may not be enough to guide Papa Noël. The alligators are tired, grumpy and bruised from banging into cypress trees, and Papa is desperate to get all the gifts to the little children. Well, "quicker than a snake shimmies down the river," the clever Cajun people come up with a solution that saves the day. A colorfully inventive Christmas tale, Papa Noël is a lesson in fast thinking, as well as a witty introduction to a part of America that's rich in folklore and legend....

    Cute! I have this in hardback and in Kindle, but returned the Kindle version because it is messed up in the formatting. Petit Papa Noel rides in a pirogue with alligators pulling it, and an albino alligator with red eyes leading the way through the foggy bayou.Dem Cajuns is smart.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQush...
