  • Description

    An old man entertains the people around his Kashmiri shop with folk stories in Ruskin Bond’s The Kashmiri Storyteller, a children’s novel.

    Summary of the Book

    At the sight of the setting sun and the first whispers of the night breeze, Javed Khan pulls at the smoke in his hookah and turns to his audience. Kamal, Shashi, Anil, Madhu and Vijay always turn up at this hour, eagerly waiting for the old man to entertain them. Javed begins with grand stories of kings and princes, magical animals and treacherous traders. He tells them stories masked in all the hues and colours of his beloved Kashmir, stories of the monkey bride, the man who was swallowed by a mosquito and a beggar who angered a ghost. This collection of stories from Ruskin Bond will surely entertain and while away the evening hours just as effectively as they would have if Javed had read them out loud to the reader in person.

    Very Very thin!

    Too much of a good thing is not good, but this book by ruskin bond is over even before u start to feel the goodness and enjoy the aura. However, this book is indeed very indulging for kids and proves very helpful in molding their creative minds. I recommend this book for all children. Happy reading!

    Excites The CHild In Everyone Of Us.

    Ruskin Bond is usually famous for novels that appeals to the minds of young adults. He dwells from the first symptoms of adulthood to the experience of first love.

    But "The Kashmiri Storyteller" is quite different. These are folk tales from Kashmir dealing with fables and supernatural stories from the pen of Ruskin bond that really takes us back to our childhood days for some time.
