Audible Editor Reviews

Nationally acclaimed storyteller J.J. Reneaux is a true raconteur who adds exuberant twists and turns to her stories, personalizing them with a Southern flavor. Reneaux performs a gumbo of unique stories, letting Cajun, Creole, Spanish, Irish, and Native American voices come through with great charm. Listeners of all ages will be enchanted by characters like Marie Jolie, who mistakenly marries the devil himself, and Leo, whose hard work is rewarded with magic gifts. Sassy and moving, Reneaux takes a fresh, delightful approach to traditional storytelling.

"Like any good raconteur," she says, "I have told the tales as I heard them, but added personal touches, twists, and turns as the stories grew to be part of my own life. For me, these tales are not museum pieces whose time was and is no more. They are alive and vigorous, brimming with joie de vivre, the zest for life that is the essence of Cajun culture."

For Ages Five to Adult.
