Overview

Gaston the green-nosed alligator has returned from the swamp and is taking adventurous readers on a tour of Mardi Gras. The things he sees on his journey are the real events that take place during Carnival! In Cajun country, Gaston joins a Courir du Mardi Gras group, enjoys spicy gumbo, and dances in a fais do-do until dawn.

Gaston's voyage then leads him to New Orleans for even more new sights. On his way, he spies a secret krewe building beautiful floats. Gaston gets to ride along with the Krewe of Zulu as they deliver painted coconuts to the crowds who are yelling, "Throw me something, Mister!" The magnificent parade of Rex, King of Carnival, delights Gaston. The festivities continue late into the night as krewe members dance the night away at magical balls. Come join Gaston in his Mardi Gras discovery!
