Around the world in 80 festivals / written by Nancy Dickmann ; illustrated by Lucy Banaji.
"When do you eat 'bread of the dead', or walk barefoot across red-hot coals? When might you dress up as a demon in a hairy suit and huge horned headdress? What are you celebrating if you climb an 18-metre-high tower made out of buns? Including a stunning central gatefold that opens out to reveal all 80 festivals, this book is a visual celebration of the huge variety of festivals that take place all across the world, from the more familiar to those you might never have heard of before. As the book takes the reader on a journey around the world, it reveals celebrations of food and drink, nature, culture, religion and history, plus ways to mark the passing of the year. Focus spreads will explore subjects such as worldwide festivals, ancient festivals and dressing up."-- Amazon.
