Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-Mehndi, or body painting with henna, was first practiced in Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia, and is gaining widespread popularity in the United States. This book is a how-to manual for novices and covers almost every aspect of the art from its origins, to how to make your own henna dye, to what tools are needed to draw traditional designs, to protecting the pattern once it is applied. Fabius closes with tips on the best way to paint the henna on the soles of the feet, the palms of the hand, the neck, the stomach, and the back. This book will have great appeal to many teens.-Robert Burnham, R. E. Lee High School, Springfield, VA
