ABOUT THIS BOOK

Three stories that will delight through words and pictures.

Ruskin Bond’s short stories have been read and loved by children for decades and he remains by far one of India’s most popular writers for children. Funny, heartwarming and full of mischief, his stories are also visual delights.

In this collection, acclaimed illustrator Priya Kuriyan draws three favourite stories as a comic book. In ‘Monkey Trouble’ find out all about the mischief Tutu the monkey that Grandfather brings home gets up to. In ‘Eye of the
Eagle’ Jai has to singlehandedly save his herd from a wily eagle. And in ‘A Special Tree’ Rakesh and Grandfather take a small seed and watch as it grows into a tree that refuses to die.

Colourful, lively and perfect for readers of all ages, this comic book version will present Ruskin Bond’s well-loved stories in an amazing new format.
