The richness of language that [the poems] offer between them is remarkable . . . This is a magical book and a prince amongst anthologies. (Spoken English)
A coherent and informative anthology on religious festivals around the world. (Independent on Sunday)
Teachers will certainly find this collection especially valuable, both those already working in multi-cultural settings and those who would like to widen their pupils' experience of festivals beyond their own traditions. (Books For Your Children)

A delightfully diverse anthology of verse celebrating festivals, some of them religious, others secular, the world over, I really liked the fact that as well as celebrations I was familiar with it also contained some such as Idh Mubarak (meaning Happy Idh) and Nyepi (The Day Of Yellow Rice) that were totally unfamiliar.
Particularly suitable for primary school readers and upwards. Packed full of glorious illustrations and handy footnotes should the festival need further explanation, I thought this a wonderful home and school friendly book, ideal given the multi-cultural/faith societies many of us now live in.
