Since their last adventure, best friends Gusto and Gecko have been itching to get back into their travel machine. They land in New Orleans ready to explore the unique city and see sights like Cafe du Monde in the famous French Quarter in New Orleans, best known for its hot, crispy, sugar-dusted beignets (pronounced "ben-yay"). But what happens when the two friends get separated and Gusto ends up in the swamps surrounded by hungry alligators? Will Gecko get there in time to save him?
Following the adventures of this daring duo, curious readers can discover historic landmarks and attractions in New Orleans, learn about the city's traditional foods, and experience Super Bowl and Mardi Gras celebrations, all without leaving their rooms!
Born in 2014 with the help of a successful crowdfunding campaign, The Curious Travels of Gusto & Gecko seeks to broaden children's horizons by introducing them to a variety of animals, plants, foods, and cultural traditions, fostering a better understanding of their world.
