I got this book for my 3 year old and while he enjoys it very much, I found the story to be just okay. It would have been better if the characters in the book tried to invite all the people they met along the way instead of discouraging them from tagging along. I found the sentences to be a bit long too. The glossary in the back was a nice touch. The illustrations in this book are beautiful.

I teach young children and I looked for an appropriate book to introduce them to Indian culture for a long time. This one is delightful and children respond to it enthusiastically. There are many interesting human and animal characters and even an adorable monkey wedding! After the story we pretend we're at the monkey wedding and dance to some fun Bollywood-style music!

Little Shoba is on her way to a wedding in Mumbai but will she ever get there? With her pet monkey Fuzzy Patel, she sets out on her journey and discovers one interesting thing after another. A camel ride, a line of elephants, an over-crowded bus, laddos, jalebees will all help bring India to little book lovers. The illustrations are very colorful and add to the overall effect of the book.

What a gorgeously detailed book! The writing and illustration are full of beauty, warmth and humor. I wanted to get on that magic bed and go for an exhilarating midnight ride with Shoba and Fuzzy Patel. The characters are lovingly drawn and the story is sweet and funny. I plan on giving this book to every child I know and hope that the adults will get a chance to enjoy it as well. I hope the author/illustrator plans to create many more such books. This one is a joy!
