BAYOU SUZETTE by Lois Lenski
Kirkus Star


Email this review


This is a new setting for Lois Lenski, but she handles it with her usual facility in making a background and atmosphere and folkways her own. Louisiana bayou country seems to be coming into its own, though -- for younger readers -- this is the only one other than the Augustus story with that setting. The story itself has plenty of incident as Suzette champions her little Indian friend and in turn is saved from the ill consequences of some of her own heedless venturings. Good sense of this strange life, half on land, half on water, and of the French survivals.
