THE KING CAKE BABY
The little plastic baby traditionally hidden inside a Mardi Gras King Cake is the runaway in this tasty new adaptation of an old folktale. The story sparkles with French phrases, New Orleans colloquialisms, and vibrant, comic-book style artwork depicting the city’s characters and treasures. Includes an easy king cake recipe. Bon appétite!
