From the time he was a boy living with his grandparents in Dehra surrounded by an assortment of odd animals, people and relatives to when he gets sent away to school then makes his way to London and becomes a writer, Rusty’s had more adventures than we can count.

The Adventures of Rusty features the early days of young Ruskin Bond. The book starts with the author’s relatively carefree childhood but gets gloomier as it progresses into his youth. Even the later parts aren’t without their light mom

We had this book in school as a part of our English Literature curriculum. I used to skip ahead of the class and finish the stories beforehand. The vivid narration by Mr Bond is so captivating that you don't wish to stop. It still remains one of the finest books I read as a kid.

A beautiful collection of stories by Ruskin bond. The writing style was wonderful and I could connect with the emotions of rusty.

Honestly I didn't want this book to end because it was a parting gift from a close friend, and this book is all about that. Beautiful narration of Indian culture from the eyes of a young boy growing up in an Indian village. This book is like a getaway, to the valleys of dehra and to the recesses of your childhood full of visits to grandparents, making new friends and being one with nature. This book is not the one that you read, you experience it. And I loved my experience!

Take a bow from a fan
