The Grand Plan to Fix Everything

Until Gene Luen Yang mentioned TGPTFE in the great little comic he did for the NYT, Glare of Disdain I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed these two books when I read them a few years ago. Sadly they’re not published in the UK despite our large South Asian diasporic population, but they’re well worth investing in for kids who love all things dance and Bollywood. The books are funny and enjoyable romps, the first set in a small town in the hills of South India, the second involves a renegade elephant (I’m a pushover when it comes to elephants in stories) and the glamorous but flighty Bollywood star Dolly Singh appears in both. Oh and rose-petal milk-shakes. Delicious, frothy and fun.
