Clovis Crawfish and the Feu Follet

Clovis and a number of his friends in the swamp travel to the nearby prairie for a day of fun and games and decide to spend the night there. During the night, Rene the Rain Frog wakes and goes towards the water. He wakes Clovis and says that a fire came out of the water and chased him. As they investigate, they meet up with Fedora Field Mouse, who explains about the feu follet or "silly fire."
