Five Star Reader Review: “This is a super cute story of a curious little girl who explores Mardi Gras for the first time. My grandkiddos enjoyed the story and colorful illustrations and I appreciated the glossary in the back. It was fun to read and helped explain some of the more typical terms you might hear around New Orleans. The cut-out mask is a great touch and an unexpected surprise at the end!” Sheree M.
