GatorWhat was the initial inspiration for your app?

In 2000 I went to New Orleans to attend SIGGRAPH, a computer graphics convention for the film and game industries.  While there I was struck with the beauty of the architecture of the French Quarter.  I also had a the opportunity to visit some friends who lived about an hour out of town.  As I drove I observed the bayou with it’s cyprus trees and the occasional shack on stilts with small boats parked out front.  Along the way I stopped at a small town where, at it’s center, was a fenced in alligator laying perfectly still in what looked like a small crudely made swimming pool.  On the fence was a sign declaring this creature to be the town gator.  Although I don’t remember it’s name, I’ll always remember feeling a little sorry for it as it lay there trapped in it’s cage.   I wondered what it might do if finally freed.  Who knows?  I reckon he might get revenge by eating some poor fella’s boots.

What is your favorite aspect of the app?

What I enjoy the most about this book is the authentic Cajun narrators.  The narration is performed by three ‘saltwater’ Cajuns from Houma, Louisiana. These voices add a level of authenticity to the book and make it a pleasure to listen to. The illustrations are rich in color and reflect the picturesque scenery of the deep Louisiana bayou, as well as a peek into New Orleans’ French quarter. The tale is full of humor and irony, and reminds the reader that life can be much easier when we show a little courtesy.
