Summary
Along the road to Mumbai, Shoba and her monkey, Fuzzy Patel, make many new friends-mysterious monks, a curious camel, and a snake with a sensitive stomach, just to name a few.Shoba and Fuzzy are on their way to a top-secret monkey wedding.But you shouldn't expect an invitation.According to Fuzzy, it will be the most boring wedding in the history of the universe. But magical things can happen on the road to Mumbai-and when trouble threatens to ruin the big event, unexpected friends come to the rescue.In vivid paintings filled with color and light (and more than one uninvited guest!), Ruth Jeyaveeran brings the beauty and excitement of India alive for children everywhere to enjoy.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "PreS-Gr. 2. On the way to attend a monkey wedding in Mumbai (Bombay), Shoba and her monkey, Fuzzy Patel, fly to India (Let's take the bed. Airplanes are so stuffy ), land in the desert, and ask the way of various creatures, including people, camels, elephants, and a snake with an artistic temperament and a sensitive stomach. Everyone is helpful and friendly, but Fuzzy certainly doesn't want those creatures (riffraff he calls them) at the festivities, and he warns them that the wedding will be boring. In fact, the wedding turns out to be a disaster--until the riffraff arrive and save the day. Many kids will enjoy the snobbish, impatient voice, and the mischievous fantasy, illustrated in bright pink, purple, and green gouache, as the pajamas-clad kid and her silly alter ego travel and dream. Just as much fun is the solemn back matter with a simple map and glossary. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2004 Booklist"
