Ruskin Bond has been writing stories for children for over six decades now, delighting and enchanting each new generation of readers with his heart-warming tales of friendship, love and coming-of-age. Curated in this essential collection are some of his best-loved stories, designed to introduce the young reader to Ruskin’s cast of beloved characters – from the irrepressible Rusty, with his constant thirst for adventure, to his Grandfather, with his overflowing kindness towards all creatures great and small, from the resolute Bina, who braves a leopard to walk to school, to Suraj and Sunder Singh, who become unlikely friends. Including classic tales such as ‘The Girl on the Train’, ‘Coming Home to Dehra’, ‘The Room of Many Colours’ and ‘The Blue Umbrella’, in turns funny, touching, whimsical and nostalgic, this collection is a must-read for children and adults alike.
