So brags the runaway in THE KING CAKE BABY, a New Orleans adaptation of The Gingerbread Man. The trickster is the little plastic baby hidden inside a traditional Mardi Gras king cake. From his French Quarter neighborhood, he escapes the kitchen of an old Creole woman, runs from a praline lady in Jackson Square, and a waiter at Café du Monde. On his way to the Mississippi River to catch the Creole Queen riverboat, he runs into a baker who knows exactly where this baby belongs.This tasty new adaptation of an old folktale sparkles with French phrases, New Orleans colloquialisms, and vibrant, comic-book style artwork depicting the citys characters and treasures. Includes an easy king cake recipe. Bon appétite!
