KIRKUS REVIEW

A gay story of carnival time in Rio with amazing illustrations by Brazil's foremost artist Candide Portinari, who has had sensational exhibits at the Museum of Modern Art and other important institutions. Six-year old Maria Rose is not amused by kite flying, zoos, foot-ball games, or island picnics, her entire being yearns to go to the great carnival to see King Momo. How her wishes are granted makes an engaging tale.
