ABOUT THIS BOOK
There’s something in this collection for everyone—scary ghost stories, thrilling adventure
tales, nonsense rhymes that will tickle you silly, stories of school and home, of celebrations
and hard times, of light-hearted fun as well as heartbreak.
In Spinning Yarns: The Best Children’s Stories from India, the classic works of literary
giants like Rabindranath Tagore and Premchand accompany the offerings of modern
masters like R. K. Narayan, Vikram Seth, Paul Zacharia and Sudha Murty. Savour the
evergreen charm of Sukumar Ray’s poetry and devour an exciting shikar tale by Jim
Corbett. Well-loved contemporary writers like Ruskin Bond, Ranjit Lal and Paro Anand
too find a place in the book.
Selected with much love and thought, the stories and poems in this anthology provide
an unforgettable experience for readers of all ages.
‘A magical bouquet of tales for children, containing works of classic and contemporary
greats—from the traditional to the modern; from the roots to the blossom.’—Gulzar
