NOLA Baby Reviews Chef Creole!

Book Reviews...What We're Reading

Chef Creole: Traditional
Song Adapted by Johnette Downing
Johnette Downing, illustrated by Deborah Ousley Kadair • $15.95
• Published by Pelican Publishing Company

New Orleans’ award-winning
songwriter and author Johnette
Downing introduces us to Chef
Creole in this delightful children’s
read (or sing) along. From the red
beans for eyes, his okra nose, and a praline mouth, he’s
the tastiest homage ever to our state’s rich food heritage.
Kids will love Kadair’s bold, collage-style illustrations,
and a handy glossary will help them learn about the best of
Louisiana fare.

-NOLA Baby, September/October 2009,
