This book was about when a girl sleeps and she and her monkey have a wild dream, traveling to Mumbai for a wedding. They have an adventure along the way, meet new characters and see new places. It also incorporates the culture and what the people are like.

The story begins with Fuzzy waking up Shoba to tell her that they must go to Mumbai for a wedding. The story tells of the people they meet along the way and how Fuzzy refuses to let anyone else tag along to the wedding when ever Shoba would try to invite them. In the end the books lets children know not to be stuck up.
Personal Reaction:
It's a great lesson for children along with the fact it teaches them of the culture in Mumbai. It teaches them to respect others and to not be stuck up.
Classroom Extensions Ideas:
I would try and introduce children to the types of clothing and the types of other culture that the people of Mumbai would enjoy. I would also bring real pictures of the markets and landscape to show how accurate the book is with the illustrations. ( )

Shoba and her monkey, Fuzzy, are off for an adventure to Mumbai. Along the way, Fuzzy and Shoba come across many new faces and experiences. But with each person they meet, Fuzzy insists that the wedding will be boring, he only says this because he doesn't want anyone else to come. When they eventually get to the monkey wedding, it turns out to be a disaster due to some family issues. But, in the end, it is saved because everyone that they met from their journey joins and saves the wedding! Hopefully fuzzy learns his lesson about being a snob.

The illustrations in this book are very beautiful and definitely draw in the readers attention. The moral of fuzzy's situation is to be more inviting/accepting, and the more the merrier. I like how the back includes a little glossary involving Indian culture, and it gives definitions accompanied by little pictures. Shoba and Fuzzy's story should encourage any young reader to crave an exciting adventure in a different country. ( )
