Synopsis

How to Dress a Po Boy by Johnette Downing

Lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, and pickleswhat makes this sandwich so special? Why, its a Po boy, of course! Made Louisiana-style with Blue Plate(R) Mayonnaise, Creole tomatoes straight from the vine, hot sauce, and some delicious roast beef debris on crusty Louisiana French Bread, it is all delightfully served up in bright paper-collage illustrations. Talented childrens author and musician Johnette Downing takes readers step by step to create the classic New Orleans sandwich, adding a heaping dash of humor with every bite. It takes a lot of skill to put together the perfect Louisiana-style po boy, and Downings catchy rhymes dance along the pages to explain the process with ease. She introduces such intriguing phrases as dressed and lagniappe all while filling the pages with colorful visual imagery. The book includes a brief history of the ubiquitous Louisiana sandwich and a word menu sure to make any readers mouth water. This book is a tasty read for even the youngest child.
