Author Keila Dawson has been making gumbo since she was a kid. Born and raised in New Orleans, she has traveled the world working as a community organizer, teacher, school administrator, educational consultant, and advocate for children with special needs. Nowadays she lives in Cincinnati, where she writes books for children, including The King Cake Baby and Opening the Road: Victor Hugo Green and His Green Book. She is also the coeditor of No Voice Too Small: Fourteen Young Americans Making History and No World Too Big: Young People Fighting Global Climate Change.
Annabelle and Beau are learning to make gumbo, but they can't agree on what kind to make! Annabelle has a great idea: Put it to a vote. The problem is, their family is too evenly split. Every vote comes out a tie. With some clever thinking and empathetic problem-solving, these siblings cook up a treat that everyone in their Louisiana Creole family can enjoy.
