About the Author:

Alice Couvillon and Elizabeth Moore are both Louisiana natives who reside in Covington and graduated from Newcomb College in New Orleans. Together they wrote the Pelican titles Mimiís First Mardi Gras, Mimi and Jean-Paulís Cajun Mardi Gras, and Louisiana Indian Tales.

Alice Couvillon and Elizabeth Moore are both Louisiana natives who reside in Covington and graduated from Newcomb College in New Orleans.

Illustrator Marilyn Carter Rougelot, who also provided the illustrations for Mimi's First Mardi Gras and Mimi and Jean-Paul's Cajun Mardi Gras as well as Portraits of Extraordinary Women, is a native New Orleanian. She began her art training in the city's Vieux Carr and is an accomplished painter specializing in portraiture.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3?A companion to Mimi's First Mardi Gras (Pelican, 1992). This time, the little girl goes to visit her cousin Jean-Paul in the country to experience the unique Courir de Mardi Gras (Mardi Gras Run) celebrated in Cajun country. All of the traditions associated with Fat Tuesday are covered. Sprinkled with Cajun phrases, the text is informative without being dry. The watercolor illustrations colorfully depict the lighthearted goings on, and both art and story convey the flavor of this special day. After a dearth of information on the subject, there are several books currently available, including Diane Hoyt-Goldsmith's excellent Mardi Gras (Holiday, 1995) and Mary Alice Fontenot's readable and informative Mardi Gras in the Country (Pelican, 1994).?Judith Constantinides, East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
