Queenie of the Hills - A Dog’s Royal Life in Mussoorie
From her palatial turreted eyrie in the hills of Mussoorie, royal canine Queenie gives an exclusive peak into the life of her seemingly rarified abode. In a series of amusing anecdotal tales, she offers witty observations and insights on human follies and behavior along with tidbits of intrigue and gup’n gossip.
Born a member of the notable working-dog Gaddi breed, Queenie has risen to unexpected heights - both literally and figuratively, as she lives up to her position as Queen of the Castle, the top -dog of the Pookajeet Palace.
Queenie chronicles her triumphs and travails, tinged with doses of satire, while narrating exploits with a memorable cast of characters - most of whom she parodies. Queenie also reflects on life’s lessons, and values universally shared by all species.
