When I Was an Alligator

Follow a curious Cajun kid as she mysteriously transforms into a series of wetlands creatures including a tree frog, a heron, a catfish, and even a mosquito! Along the way, each animal reveals something of its habits and habitat. With fun language, page-turning onomatopoeia, and charming art, When I Was an Alligator is a playful and informative exploration of Louisiana's treasured coastal wetlands. When I Was an Alligator was chosen by the Louisiana State Library to represent the state at the Library of Congress National Book Festival in 2022.
