Three novels about the Doll Land of Sha Bebe.

I designed each cover and took all the photos to illustrate parts of the story in each book. I love digital art!

All Sha Bebe items are collectibles and will become VERY familiar one day.

Sha Bebe items are collectibles and their value will go up as time goes by.

Joy, happiness, and mystery thrive in the sugarcane fields
of the Doll Land of Sha Bebe.

Remember "The Land"- ! - It will become VERY familiar one day!

Book one--- Do you believe? --- is 88 pages with photos.
Book two -- Cajun Fairies --- is 220 pages with photos.
Book Three - The Wizard of Swamp Alley - 216 pages with photos

Genre: Fantasy/Fiction -- For ages 9 to 99 years

1---"Do you believe?" is about grief and change.

2---"Cajun Fairies" is about courage and perseverance to confront evil.

3---"The Wizard of Swamp Alley" is a portal between "this side" and the "other side". Sometimes, the presence of the other side may be near YOU. You won't be disappointed.

Plaisance created a kind of Cajun muslin doll she calls Sha Bebe and copyrighted them in the 1990's. Then she wrote a series of books about the dolls- a world she made up just for them. Part folklore and part fiction, the idea of both the dolls and the books is a charming one that is full of distinctly Cajun flavors.

So far there are three books in the series. They read like darling bedtime stories and are clearly meant for younger audiences. Sometimes the details can be a bit off,
especially with regard to time, but it could be Plaisance desires that affect since the dolls themselves care little about time in terms of years.

The first book reads as almost one long conversation where the Sha Bebe dolls tell a human about the ways of their land. The following two books actually take you into the Land of Sha Bebe as it is threatened by different evil forces. The second and third books are by far better written and more interesting.
The plots move quickly enough to keep you reading. They make wonderful relaxation reading, if you don’t mind some references to magic. Overall, one gets the feeling these
would make entertaining animated movies. Who knows if maybe they will be one day?

The books also feature many photographs of the dolls participating in various activities within their world which help one to visualize the explanations offered in the conversation. The dolls themselves are absolutely adorable.

The real charm of these books is the muslin doll characters and this rare and engaging glimpse into Louisiana’s Cajun culture. There is simply not enough in mainstream literature and culture about this unique and colorful little world in the south.
Plaisance’s story-telling methods improve with each book as do her dolls.

May this be the trickle of water that will become a river of information about Cajun culture!
