"MeeMaw Swallows Mardi Gras" is the latest book creation by Joanne Mehrtens and Pat Roig.
Their new book has our two favorite New Orelans roaches, Ralph and Roxanne, trying to get their MeeMaw to understand just what Mardi Gras is all about. As the Reroach Brass Band plays their way through the parade season Mee Maw eats her way through it. It seems that no matter what Ralph or Roxanne bring her she just swallows it and still doesn't know what the celebration is all about. She finally get it when they bring her a ---no, I'm not going to say it. You will have to read the book to know what she swallowed that really told her what Mardi Gras.
The illustrations are great and will give kids from everywhere the chance to see Mardi Gras delightfully portrayed through their crayola drawings. The story is written in such a way that ,once again, children everywhere will know easily about all the things that make our Mardi Gras so much fun.
If you buy this book it will be just as delightful if you read this book to your mee maw or if she reads it to you !
