Mystery, friendship, and a grand adventure.

Twelve-year-old Melanie is bored with her little sister and with yet another Mardi Gras in her hometown. But when she notices a secret code built into the floats of a Mardi Gras parade, she realizes that life might have some surprises left.

Review:

"Exceptionally well written and thoroughly entertaining for young readers ages 8 to 12, "The Mardi Gras Chase" is very highly recommended for school and community library collections." ~ Midwest Book Review

"In The Mardi Gras Chase, Melanie, Kate and Faye are attending one of the many Mardi Gras parades in Mobile, Alabama. Melanie is bored and can't see whatall of the hoopla is about. As she is contemplating whether or not to stay, something catches her attention -- the signs that precede each float have an upside down letter. Why? The Mardi Gras Chase is ideal for a preteen because Larche gets the reader immediately involved in the story. It is not only a great book, but a great way for the reader to process thoughts, create solutions, and complete the puzzles." ~Readers' Favorite, 5 Stars

Third place winner in the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators 2015 Southern Breeze Writing Contest
