Banner for the Firework-Maker's Daughter


Join us for this magical adventure! A young girl named Lila wants to become a firework-maker like her father, Lalchand. Despite her talents, Lalchand believes this is an unsuitable job for girls.  Lila disagrees, and journeys to get Royal Sulphur from Razvani, the Fire-Fiend at Mount Merapi, as all aspirant firework-makers must do. You'll see Hamlet, the talking elephant, and his caretaker, Chulak, deliver the water of the Goddess of the Emerald Lake to protect Lila through the dangers of the jungle. Lila must make this heroine’s journey to find the three gifts to save her father. Step into the jungle with Lila as she encounters snakes, tigers, pirates, and crocodiles! Will she find what she’s looking for and become the firework-maker that she dreams to be?
