Carl the Rooster book is now available for purchase

‘Carl the Rooster, a children’s book’ is now available for purchase.

Chelsea Prince, the author, moved to Ocean Springs three years ago with her family. While visiting town often with her children, Prince had the chance to know Carl by watching his daily activities.

Prince was inspired to write her first book on Carl since he was not only the mascot, but loved by the community. She started it before he died.

Prince and her family were devastated after hearing about the death of Carl and she was glad she started the book to have something to remember him by. “It is available now. I’m so happy, you can get it directly from me on my website, which is It is also available locally. Right now, it is at Coast Aesthetics. It’s going to be here at the Mary C. and hopefully other shops downtown.”

This Saturday, Prince will be at the Mary C. O’Keefe Cultural Arts Center for a book signing from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
