Summary
She began with little Crackle-Dragons, six on a string. Then she learned how to make Leaping Monkeys, Golden Sneezes, and Java Lights. Soon she was thinking about more complicated ones. What Lila wants to be more than anything else in the world is a Firework-Maker. But firework-making isn't just about making Crackle-Dragons and Golden Sneezes. There's also a special secret- every Firework-Maker must make a perilous journey to face the terrifying Fire-Fiend! Can Lila make it back safely?
Summary
In a country far to the east, Chulak and his talking white elephant Hamlet help Lila seek the Royal Sulphur from the sacred volcano so that she can become a master maker of fireworks like her father
