Ruskin Bond is a celebrated Indian author whose children books are quite capturing.


Illustrator: Archana Sreenivasan

Publisher : Puffin Books

Age group : 9 and above

The story is about a boy whose quiet, imaginative and sensitive. He is not an adventurous boy but always finds himself in the most extraordinarily situations. Rusty’s imagination weaves a different world.

The story is set up in Dehradun, often mentioned as Dehra. The description of the city brings it to life. It’s a perfect read for a growing up child to understand the ways of the world. The vocabulary is a bit tough so one would need to sit with a dictionary in hand. At times the story becomes a bit complicated and difficult to understand.

Child would undergo a mix of emotions after reading the book.
