Today, a friend and I were joking around making Cajun versions of classic fairy tales like "Jack And The Beanstalk", "Goldilocks And The Three Bears" and more. After I got home from work, I decided to get on the Google to see if anyone else had the same ideas we did. As I found out, there are indeed quite a few Cajun adaptations of classic children's fairy tales, and they look fantastic.

Abbeville native and former teacher Sheila Hebert-Collins penned a nice collection of these Cajun adaptations between 1993 and 2001. It all started with her Cajun version of "Goldilocks And The Three Bears" titled "Jolie Blonde and the Three Héberts".

All of my kids have been in the French Immersion program, and they tell me they've read a few of these and really enjoyed them.

They are all available from Pelican Publishing, and you can get them HERE.
