ABSTRACT/SUMMARY

A pompous bayou bobcat and grouchy alligator boast that they are braver and stronger than anyone in the swamp.  They bully others and claim not to be afraid of the Loup Garou; the werewolf-like creature who lurks in the dark swamp waters.  When both challenge each otherís bravery and power, they are faced with a real opponent. Is it the Loup Garou? Or just a clever challenger?  Fooshet and CloHebert learn a lesson about bullying and find out the true meaning of bravery.  Sometimes it doesnít take power or loud noise to win.  It might just take being quietly clever.
