SCBWI - The Society of Children's Bookwriters and Illustrators also has, um, Illustrators

Timothy Hubble and the King Cake Party

My friend Virginia Howard is an extremely talented illustrator. She did the illustrations for this terrific book, including the cover. King Cake is very important in New Orleans and King Cake parties are held at work, home, parades, whatever. There's a particular season for King Cake. Twelfth Night through Fat Tuesday. Get this book for your kiddie-coos and, if it's King Cake season, there are several bakeries who will ship one out for you. It's a lot of fun. Try it!


  1. What a joyous cover! King cakes are delicious, and adventurous, too. If you are wondering what makes a King Cake adventurous, maybe you should read the book. Cudos, Virginia!

  2. Another comment--good to see you posting again, Laura. Missed your blog!
