About the Book:
From Twelfth Night to Mardi Gras, follow Phoebe, a tiny bulldog on a tail-wagging adventure through the streets of New Orleans in search of a parade just for dogs!
“Beads, bouncy balls, and blinky rings…
You can catch so many things.
So many things to see and do!
Throw me something I can chew!”
Phoebe Cakes The Bulldog is a sturdy, 24-page board book that engages children with interactive search-and-find flaps on every spread. The dynamic illustrations and clever rhyming verses guide readers to discover the sights and sensations of Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
Join Phoebe Cakes, a special needs bulldog, as she searches for a Mardi Gras parade just for dogs. Ring in carnival season with a “Twelfth Night” celebration ride on the historic St. Charles Avenue streetcar.
Tour New Orleans neighborhoods and discover the spectacular house floats of Yardi Gras that began during the pandemic but are surely here to stay. Take time to savor all the King Cake flavors and just maybe you’ll find the baby!
Don’t forget to yell, “Throw me something mister, Throw me something sister!” and catch beads and other “throws” at every parade around the city. When Fat Tuesday comes to an end, yell “amen”! We’ll do it all again…next year!
This colorful book features flaps on every spread that engage children with a question and then reveal a surprise as they open the flap.
Lisa Book Shelf:
I am adding these books to our Library shelf because these children are prefect for our Louisiana section. These hard books are wonderful illustrated and cute verbiage that is age appropriate. Perfect for our early readers. Join the fun this Mardi Gras .
