Gris Gris and the Cypress Tree
Join Gris-Gris, the friendly swamp monster, as he discovers Louisiana's state symbols. The use of rhymes and repetition in the story lead the reader on a whimsical journey through a mysterious swamp that is decorated with Louisiana state symbols.
Expressionist artwork creates vivid imagery that helps young minds process and appreciate these oil paintings.
