Liza Papi (au) (il). Carnivals rule the streets of Brazil from Christmas to Ash Wednesday. This is a time of performances, merrymaking, & feasting that blends Catholic beliefs with African & Portuguese heritage into a variety of public celebrations. This wonderful book presents the folklore behind the festivities, explaining the significance of the colorful costumes, dances, & characters. Brazilian artist Liza Papi translates the energy & the rich traditions of northeastern Brazil into her vibrant, hand-colored, woodcut prints. Also, this unique storybook offers instructions on festive, easy-to-make decorations & costumes from common supplies such as newspapers, wheat paste, felt, colored paper, & nontoxic paints & glue.
