Note: summary text provided by external source.

Nobody is as good at being bad as Lapin! As long as there are fools to be fooled, Lapin figures he might as well do the fooling. He can't resist playing tricks on Bouki any more than he can turn down King Cake at Mardi Gras. As for Bouki, he is so tired of being hoodwinked by this do-nothing rascal of a rabbit that he is determined to get the best of the puny trickster once and for all (and maybe even get a little rabbit cooked in sauce piquante on the side). As always, however, little triumphs over big and brains bewilder brawn in three new larger-than-life Lapin tales full of sly wit and Cajun spice perfectly captured in Scott Cook's impish, irreverent pictures. Lapin may be small, but when the smarts were handed out, he got himself an extra helping. As fans of this picayune prankster know, "Size ain't everything in this world. It's what you do with what you got that matters!"

Although the vast majority of books that have Lexile measures did not change, a small subset of books required updated Lexile measures.

Many products and services offer Lexile measures for their books and reading materials. We are working with the hundreds of companies that partner with us to transition them to the more precise Lexile measures.
