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.
