Cordero both wrote and illustrated this book that is based on the Shreveport Mardi Gras Krewe Barkus & Meoux!

“There are so many people that care about the welfare of animals and raising money and volunteering to be able to contribute in that capacity in the community. I absolutely love that. I love cats and dogs so much, cats are my most favorite. I just wanted to give back in a way and elevate and celebrate that element of our culture here in northwest Louisiana.”

If you’d like to get your hands on a book, Cordero is hosting a signing at the Barnes and Noble on Youree Drive from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 14!
