It’s Mardi Gras and although parades and parties have been cancelled due to the pandemic, “Laissez les bon temps rouler!” (Let the good times roll!)
Today, I’d like to share a delightful book that you and your family can enjoy from the comfort (and safety) of your home!
“The Runaway Beignet” is a retelling of “The Gingerbread Man” and it takes place in New Orleans during Mardi Gras!
In the book, a mysterious stranger gives a baker named Marcel a magic bag of sugar and grants him a wish!
