"Mr. Okra Sells Fresh Fruits and Vegetables"

Available online and in bookstores

When Mr. Okra drives by in his iconic, painted truck piled high with garden-fresh fruits and vegetables, people hear him calling “I got asparagus. I got eggplant." Mr. Okra’s asparagus are thin and tall like the steeples of St. Louis Cathedral, and his eggplants are as dark as the coffee at Café du Monde.


Bright illustrations of tasty, healthy food pop from the pages of this mouthwatering romp around familiar New Orleans locations. Readers follow the beloved local and his truck as he brings food and song to the city.
