A girl and her nana take the streetcar to City Park in New Orleans for a big day on the carousel. The "flying horses" are not only beautiful and exciting but have an interesting story behind them. This charming picture book brings both the thrill and the history of this beloved icon of the Crescent City to life for young readers.
Around the world Santa Claus has many names. But in a deep, swampy bayou of Louisiana, he's known as Papa No l. In such a hot and humid place, there can be no sleds or reindeer, so Papa No l rides the river in a boat that's pulled by eight alligators, with a snowy white one named Nicollette in the lead.
