Betsy Lewin’s lively line-and-wash cartoon sketches and spot drawings are intermingled with Ted Lewin’s sweeping watercolor paintings, which make effective use of light and rich color to portray both the intensity of the competition and the pageantry of the celebration. . . . The book provides a dynamic view of a culture rarely portrayed in children’s books and an event that is sure to interest many young readers.
