    Description

    The Room on the Roof is Ruskin Bond’s first book. It offers readers a view into the mind of Bond’s seventeen year old self.

    Summary of the Book

    Written when Ruskin Bond was merely seventeen, this book tells the story of an Anglo-Indian boy named Rusty. Rusty lives in Dehra, and following his parents’ death, he is forced to live with his English guardian, a strict disciplinarian with strong Victorian principles. Rusty craves to spend time amidst the bazaars and streets near his house, but the man refuses to let him. However, it isn’t very easy to keep a 16 year old boy locked up. This is a tale of friendship, caring and the joys of youth.

    About Ruskin Bond

    Ruskin Bond is an Indian writer of British descent. He is best remembered for Our Trees Still Grow in Dehra, A Flight of Pigeons, The Adventures of Rusty and Angry River.

    Bond was awarded the Sahitya Akademi Award and the Padma Bhushan.

    Wonderful

    The other half of the book is in 'Rusty & the Leopard'. But its rather a good book for children. The scripts are in simple language which could be easily understood.
