Synopsis

Gaston Goes to Mardi Gras Coloring Book by James Rice

From the Jefferson City Buzzards, the oldest marching group in the city, to the Krewes of Rex and Zulu, author and illustrator James Rice captures the magic of the carnival season in a coloring book. In Cajun country, Gaston(R) joins a Courir du Mardi Gras group, enjoys spicy gumbo, and dances in a fais do-do until dawn. In New Orleans, he rides along with the Krewe of Zulu and delivers painted coconuts to the crowds. The festivities continue with Mardi Gras balls where Gaston(R) dances the night away. The simple line drawings of Gaston(R) Goes to Mardi Gras are perfect for a coloring book and are a wonderful companion to the classic full-color book of the same title.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
