May Day has passed, but May still has a few days in its pocket and, anyway, who cares because every day can be lei day in Hawai'i, right? So it's not too late to pick up a copy of Minako Ishii's charming little picture book, May Day Lei Day (Bess Press). Exercising his penchant for unusual book design, Buddy Bess has published a reversible book, one that can be read back to front, or front to back well, front to middle or back to middle. Photos by Ishii and text by Jeffrey Kent express the joy and beauty of May and lei from pageants and competitions to historic events (the Queen Mum dancing the hula with Duke Kahanamoku). Sweet. --Wanda Adams, The Honolulu Advertiser
