A COLLECTION OF MEMORABLE STORIES STRAIGHT FROM BELOVED CHILDREN'S AUTHOR RUSKIN BOND’S HEART.
Miss Kellner has a tin of biscuits that fascinates little Ruskin. And granny’s cat is just so full of attitude. Oh, and have you heard about the famous playback singer from Mumbai who sang for the ghost of the maestro Tansen? Ruskin Bond’s charming life has been anything but ordinary.
He scours through his memories to come up with tales that celebrate life and its myriad splendours and many lessons—spectacular wonders of nature, surprising friendships among animals and people, and even ghosts that sing. Tales from My Heart, written in Bond’s inimitable style, is peppered with his trademark warmth and wit.
Vividly illustrated by Sumouli Dutta, this is a gift for all readers, big and small—a family treasure to return to with joy and affection over the years.
