Eleven-year old Dini loves movieswatching them, reading about them, trying to write her ownespecially Bollywood movies. But when her mother tells her some big news, it does not at all jive with the script of her life she has in mind. Her family is moving to Indiaand, not even to Bombay, which is the center of the Bollywood universe and home to Dinis all-time most favorite star, Dolly. No, Dini is moving to a teeny, tiny village she cant even find on a map. Swapnagiri. It means Dream Mountain and it only looks like a word thats hard to pronounce. But to that open-minded person who sounds the name out, one letter at a time, it falls quite handily into place: S-w-a-p-n-a-g-i-r-i. An honest sort of name, with no surprise letters waiting to leap out and ambush the unwary. That doesnt mean there arent surprises in Swapnagiri like mischievous monkeys and a girl who chirps like a birdand the biggest surprise of all: Dolly. So now, Dini is hard at work on a new script, the script in which she gets to meet the amazing Dolly. But, life is often more unpredictable than the movies and when Dini starts plotting her story things get a little out of control. This is a joyful, lively Bollywood inspired story is full of colorful details, delicious confections and the wondrous, magical powers of coincidence. Uma Krisnaswami will have you smiling from ear to ear.
