Mary Alice Fontenot
Birth: Apr. 16, 1910
St. Landry Parish
Louisiana, USA
Death: May 12, 2003
Lafayette Parish
Louisiana, USA

Acclaimed Author. She wrote the "Clovis Crawfish" series, in which the title character and his animal friends experienced a host of adventures. The goal of the series, for which she penned 18 different books, was to teach life lessons to children while helping them learn a little of the Cajun French language; Clovis and his pals spoke mostly English with Cajun sayings and songs thrown in. She also wrote other books, including "The Star Seed" and "The Louisiana Experience." (bio by: Joel Manuel)
