In this clever counting book with a Louisiana twist, the Rougarou (Cajun werewolf) can only be stopped by placing 13 small objects in a line across the doorway. A young boy finds a way to trick the confused Rougarou in this colorful board book as emerging readers count along with the Rougarou.
Summary: According to legend handed down for many generations, either directly from French settlers to Louisiana or from the French Canadian immigrants, the Rougarou (Cajun werewolf), cannot count to 13. So when parents on the bayou scare their children with the creature, they also tell them that if thirteen stones are placed across a doorway he won't enter until he can count them. Since he only has ten fingers and toes how will he count that high?
