The Wise Mullet of Cook Bayou

by Timothy A. Weeks

The much loved original, now in its fourth printing! It’s the incredible journey of the Wise Mullet, who escapes alligators, sharks and fishing nets by listening to his little voice. Traveling all the way from East Bay to West Bay in search of a new home, the Wise Mullet encounters turtles, dolphins, shrimp boats and pelicans. This endearing fable ends like a fairy tale in a place called Pretty Bayou, when the Wise Mullet meets a girl mullet with the shiniest scales he had ever seen.
