"The A-List" - Today's Books, Bookweek

My new book DOWN IN LOUISIANA was placed on “The A-List” in the October 29, 2007 issue of Today’s Books, Bookweek:

“NEW ORLEANS SINGER-SONGWRITER Johnette Downing adapts a bayou counting song in the April 2007 Pelican Publishing $15.95 animal nursery rhyme, DOWN IN LOUISIANA (978-1-58980-451-7), a hardcover color-illustrated with collages by Deborah Ousley Kadair, Texas. Family Choice and Parents’ Choice awards are among the many collected by Downing, who also collaborated with Kadair on Today Is Monday in Louisiana for Pelican. Louisiana wetland critters - including pelicans, of course -- are shown in their habitat, with alligators, bears, armadillos, possums and mosquitos among those getting their verse and their due. Downing has produced six CDs of her own original songs which draw on Louisiana’s musical past. Today’s Books puts Down in Louisiana on ‘The A-List.’”
