Gr. 6-12. This slim volume offers young people a good, practical guide to do-it-yourself mehndi--the practice of drawing on the body with henna. More straightforward and better organized than Stephanie Iris Weiss' Everything You Need to Know about Mehndi [BKL Jl 00], this begins with a very brief chapter about the history of henna body art and mentions its cross-cultural, contemporary use. Most of the book is an informed guide to purchasing, preparing, and applying henna, including recipes from professional mehndi studios. The information is presented in a neat, breezy format that includes checklists and boxed warnings, such as doing a preliminary patch test to check for allergies. A detailed guide to symbols (with explanations that may be debatable) and a resource chapter with addresses and Web sites round out the volume. Young people wanting a hands-on guide to this growing art will find this a good starting point. Gillian Engberg
