The Bourbon Street Musicians by Kathy Z. Price

I just had to look around and see if I could find any other variants on the Bremen Town Musicians. And to my delight, I found The Bourbon Street Musicians.

The Bourbon Street Musicians

The tale is reimagined in the setting of rural Louisiana, giving the whole story a Cajun flavor, and with the rich musical history of Bourbon Street, it makes for an apt retelling. Although I found the dialect a little heavy for reading, I think it would be a fun and imaginative way to share a picture book with a kid.
