Based on a song from Johnette Downing's new album Swamp Romp, A Louisiana Dance Party for Children, this rhythmic original story celebrates king cake, the culinary centerpiece of New Orleans Mardi Gras. Believed to have originated in twelfth-century France, the kind cake is an homage to the wise men or three kings. At King Cake parties in New Orleans, usually hosted before Mardi Gras parades, you will hear locals ask, "Who got the baby in the king cake?" Beautiful, colorful illustrations accompany this joyous book designed to entertain and educate kids of all ages. Written and Illustrated by Johnette Downing.
