KIRKUS REVIEW

Festivals, fabulous and flamboyant, are fun the world over. The Doll Festival of Japan, the Peruvian Festival with water battles on the street and eggshells filled with dye to splatter friendly enemies, May Day in England, Midsummer's Eve in Finland and the Candy Festival in Turkey, with lingering choices from the myriad jars in the candy shops, are some examples from this collection of the world's holiday merry-making. Original material gaily presented, of interest from fourth grade through the teens.
