The Kashmiri Storyteller

Age Range: 9+ years

As darkness falls outside; and the chill sets in; Javed Khan pulls at his hookah and begins his stories…

When Kamal and his friends gather at Javed Khan’s Kashmiri shop at Landour bazaar; he enthralls them with his stories—of princes and kings; fairies and magical animals; supermen and cunning traders. Come; sit around the fire with Kamal; Shashi; Anil; Madhu and Vijay while they listen to Javed Khan’s stories of the monkey bride; the man who got swallowed by a mosquito; the bent-up double beggar who angered a ghost; and many other tales from Kashmir and beyond.
In this brilliantly illustrated collection; Ruskin Bond brings alive unforgettable folktales from the misty hills of Kashmir that will delight and enchant his followers both young and old.

Dust On the Mountain

Age Range: 9+ years

Ruskin Bond wrote his first short story; ‘Untouchable’; at the age of sixteen over hundred stories; including the classics ‘A Face in Dark’; ‘The Kitemaker’; ‘The Tunnel’; ‘The Room if many Colours’; ‘Dust on the Mountain’; and ‘Times Stops at Shamli’. This volume brings together the best of all the short fiction Ruskin Bond has ever written.

‘[Ruskin Bond’s stories]’ brings to life the special flavours of life in the hills…strengthen[s] the “Rudyardian thesis” that the smell of the Himalayas; if it once creeps into the blood of a man; he will return to the hills again and again and will love to live and lie among them.’-Tribune

‘[Ruskin Bond]’ is a writer who has; with intense depth and sensitivity; absorbed the essence of the culturally syncretic Indian society.’-Telegraph
