Mardi Gras in Alabama!
Written by Karyn W. Tunks and Illustrated by Alexis Braud

Funny little Folly loves Mardi Gras
It’s his favorite time of year.
He wants to go to every parade;
There’s so much to see, do, and hear.

Follow Folly as he celebrates Mardi Gras in Alabama!  Hang on tight because he wants to see every parade in Mobile and Baldwin Counties.  Folly has a front-row seat as he rides with kings and queens and tags along with Joe Cain.  From catching throws with the crowd to joining right in with the marching bands, Folly is a part of all the festivities.

Through bouncing rhyme and lively illustrations, Karyn Tunks and Alexis Braud capture the unique flavor of Carnival season along Alabama’s Gulf Coast.  Highlighting the best of the local revelry, Folly brings young readers along as he explores favorite Mobile-area traditions.  A glossary of people, places and things completes Carnival fans’ introduction to the most colorful season of the year.  So come along and join the fun as we celebrate Mardi Gras in Alabama!
