Angry Birds Take a Festive Flight

Article excerpt

The official companion to the video game, National Geographic Angry Birds Seasons: A Festive Flight into the World's Happiest Holidays and Celebrations ($13.95, paperback) by Amy Briggs, shares cultural traditions across the globe with fascinating facts, images, and Angry Birds humor.

From the Chinese New Year in Beijing in January to the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in March in Alaska to Pamplona's Running of the Bulls in July to the Bahamas' colorful Junkanoo Festival in December, the lovable Angry Birds characters hop the continents in search of the most festive occasions throughout the year. Photographs accompany the text, and "Festive Facts" and "Holidata" give the book a distinctive style.

Alongside their favorite avian characters, readers will learn about cultural traditions in a variety of countries and the rituals and customs that go along with celebrating the most popular annual festivals and holidays. Each of the book's 12 chapters shares a month's worth of celebrations, some well-known, such as Valentine's Day, Cinco de Mayo, and Halloween, others less so, like Festa Junina in Brazil or the Aomori Nebuta festival in Japan.
