Mardi Gras In New Orleans
Mardi Gras in New Orleans is a children’s picture book that sets young readers on a journey through the storied Carnival season in New Orleans through rich, vibrant imagery that excites, intrigues, and inspires. The story showcases all the fun aspects of Mardi Gras (beads, floats, marching bands), but ultimately leaves the reader feeling that Mardi Gras is something greater—it’s about community and the spirit that binds us all together. The gorgeous gallery-quality illustrations by Jackson Square artist Mellissa Moore bring the pages to life and transport the reader to the heart of the city’s beloved celebrations with an incredible sense of detail, emotion, and local flavor.
