Mardi Gras in New Orleans is a festival for the whole city'and in this buoyant picture book two children experience the holiday in their own special way. Watching the Mardi Gras Indians in their beautiful hand-sewn costumes; viewing the parades and catching the beads and coins pitched from the fabulous floats'from dawn till night's end, this is a day filled with wonders.Author Fatima Shaik's vivid picture of Mardi Gras in a close-knit African-American community is perfectly illustrated by Floyd Cooper's shimmering paintings, filled with the pageantry and spirit of this grand celebration.
