Book- The Firework- Maker's Daughter

The Firework- Maker's Daughter by Philip Pullman. Thanks, Prosenjit, Elsa for introducing the Philip Pullman stories to me. 

This is the story of a girl, Lila, and her ambition to become a firework-maker. Her father does not help her to become one. Determined with her ambition, she starts her journey to become a firework-maker. Her friend Chulak, an elephant Hamlet help her out.  

Woven with magical elements and imaginative landscape, Philip wrote a brilliant story. I was surprised to read the Indian names, Lila, Lalchand, Jembavati. Vague in the geographical location, the story seemed Indian. Enjoyed it.
