AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Carnival is coming, and the villagers of John John, Trinidad, are getting ready to jump up and celebrate with music, dancing, and a parade. Best of all, the Roti King has promised free rotis - tasty fried pancakes filled with chicken, herbs and spices - for the best in the parade. Publisher's blurb.
