    Description

    Great Stories For Children contains a mixed bag of tales, featuring everything from nature and pets to leopards, bears, and even ghosts, written in the inimitable witty style of Ruskin Bond.

    Summary Of The Book

    The short stories featured in this book introduce readers to new worlds and interesting people. First up, there's Tutu, the monkey who loves to stir up trouble for Aunt Ruby. Aunt Ruby becomes enraged when he runs off with her precious necklace. Will she manage to get it back? In another story, a pet python suddenly shows up in the most unexpected places, causing mayhem as he appears.

    Then comes a naughty ghost who amuses himself by riling up the residents of the house, whenever he is bored. The book has a story where the protagonists, three children, are stranded and forced to wait out a storm on a haunted hill.

    One story also features a cunning thief, who is adept at escaping every single time. But one day, his conscience gets the better of him. Does he manage to leave his old lifestyle behind and become an honest man? This collection even contains an amusing story about the famed Himalayan bears. They enjoy gorging on plums, apricots and pumpkins.

    One tale in Great Stories For Children stars the maestro, Ruskin Bond, himself. While staying at a resort, he encounters a ghost in the dead of the night. What does the ghost want? Will Bond manage to come away safely?

    Great Stories For Children also includes other stories like Strange Men, Strange Places, School Days, All Roads Lead To Ganga, The Rupa Carnival Of Terror, and School Times.
