A legend unfolds in rhyming verse about a young woman, once known throughout the bayous, swamps, and prairies for her graceful hands and generosity, who falls victim to a curse. Hauntingly dramatic uses of softly focused darkness and light capture the spirit of this spicy Cajun New Year’s Eve tale. Children will be equal parts thrilled and spooked to set their shoes out at night in hopes that Mademoiselle Grands Doigts will fill them with treats.
