Review quote

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.
