Gr 5-8-A wizard shares 600 years worth of ideas for staging a party, along with an appropriate story to tell guests for each occasion. Themes include spring, winter, Chinese New Year, Halloween, and summer solstice, as well as generic parties for "alchemists," and Merlin and Aladdin fanciers. Many of the festivities require involved and not inexpensive materials. Craft and food ideas usually have some magical (usually chemical reactive) twist. The decorations, games, food, songs, and stories are described in great detail, and readers are advised when to seek help from an adult. The text is superimposed on splashes and swirls of color, and the illustrations are decorative as well as instructional. This is the ultimate, over-the-top, party idea book for well-off, bored middle schoolers who may be lured by the Harry Potteresque motifs.-Cathie Reed, The Montessori School, Lutherville, MD Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
