“African Cats” prize winner announced!

If you came by the Welcome Tent at the New Orleans Earth Day Festival, you may have seen a copy of this beautiful book:

It’s for Disney Nature’s new movie, “African Cats,” which came out April 22. The folks at Disney were gracious enough to donate a copy of the book for us to raffle off, and the lucky winner is … Arlo Mizell! The 9-year-old New Orleans resident stopped by the LABB offices last week with his mom, Cathe Mizell-Nelson, to pick up the book. Congratulations, Arlo!
