Overview

Gaston� the Green-nosed Alligator has returned from the swamp and is taking adventurous readers on a colorful tour of Mardi Gras. 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 designed for children of all ages.

Full of James Rice's enchanting illustrations for children to color, this activity book is the perfect gift for any child eager to learn about the Mardi Gras tradition. In Cajun country, Gaston joins a Courir du Mardi Gras group, enjoys spicy gumbo, and dances in a fais-do-do until dawn. In New Orleans, Gaston rides along with the Krewe of Zulu and delivers painted coconuts to the crowds who are yelling, "Throw me something, Mister!" The festivities continue with Mardi Gras balls where Gaston dances the night away.

Every page has Rice's signature artistic style for children to enjoy and learn more about the magic of Mardi Gras!
