To Carnival



  • NYC Big Book Distinguished Favorite, Children’s Fiction, 2021
  • Best Picture Books of the Year, Kirkus Reviews, 2021

★ ‘‘A must-have picture book that educates while it thoroughly entertains’’ – Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Young readers are transported to the Caribbean in this introduction to its culture and wildlife . . . Paul and Glatt’s characters sparkle on the page as they add to their group of friends and realize that they, too, can shine in their own parade” – Booklist

“Imagine a celebration that lasts for 2 ½ months. You don’t have to if you have this book” – Betsy Bird, Librarian, @FuseEight

“The vibrant rainbow of Carnival is reflected in illustrations that marry digital art with childlike drawings, and a section at the back educates children on the culture of Saint Lucia and the history of Carnival” – Foreword Reviews

“Glatt’s folk-art-style paintings complement this story rooted in the cultural life of a community, and the festive spirit of Carnival comes through vividly in the cacophonously colorful palette . . . Baptiste’s winsome tale provides an accessible introduction to an important cultural tradition” – The Horn Book Magazine
