Storytime with Kat Pigott

Join us as author Kat Pigott (Green Dinosaur Pancakes) shares her newest book : The Flying Horses of City Park with us at Storytime!

“A delightful story about Ava and her nana at the historic carousel in New Orleans. What a fun ride The Flying Horses of City Park is!” —Cheryl Mathis, regional advisor, Louisiana/Mississippi Chapter of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, contributing author The Bayou Bogeyman Presents Hoodoo and Voodoo

“Kat Pigott’s text and author’s note enhance a trip to the carousel in City Park in New Orleans. Pre-reading prepares for a search of the kinds of animals, types of rides, and decoration locations. Reading afterwards recalls a child’s own experience on the rides.” —Virginia McGee Butler, author of the twice-weekly blog Readin’, Ritin’, But Not Much ’Rithmetic

Author Kat Pigott’s love for the carousel shines through in this lighthearted and educational tale of a grandmother and grand- daughter as they spend the day together exploring the carousel's magical animals. Artist Tami Curtis provides vibrant and detailed images of the ride that continues to captivate generations of New Orleanians. An author’s note recounts the history of the only an- tique wooden carousel in Louisiana, one of 100 such carousels in the entire United States.
