Lent. It can be a bummer, especially if you give something up. I rarely do, so it’s not so bad for me. But this book isn’t about Lent, it’s about Carnaval, that pre-Lent celebration known as Mardi Gras in New Orleans. This is a look at this celebration as it’s celebrated all over the world, from places like villages in Europe and small towns in Haiti - and lots of places in between. It’s fun, it’s pretty and it’s educational. Artsy too. For the casual historian, carnaval enthusiast, or just those people that like to see people dress-up in weird hats and masks. Like many books in the world, considerably better than I can make it sound. #25997
