1. Great Stories for Children - It is a collection of some of Ruskin Bond's most delightful children's stories. It stars Toto, the monkey, who takes a fancy to the narrator's aunt, much to her dismay, a python besotted by his own appearance, a mischievous ghost who enjoys stirring up the house when things get dull, three young children stranded in a storm on the Haunted Hill and Ruskin Bond himself, who happens to make the acquaintance of a ghost at a resort late one night.
This 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.
This book features the titular character of Rusty, an anglo-Indian boy who bears close resemblances to author when he was a child himself. In this way, it can be considered a semi-autobiographical, semi-fiction work which has been written in lucid English.
