Rusty And The Leopard (Rusty #4)
Age Range: 9+ years
A chronicle of Rusty’s rebellious, eventful progression into manhood.
Rusty, having run away from his guardian’s home, is now trying to define his identity as he lives with the Kapoor family, tutoring their son Kishen and occupying the room on the roof.
Soon, he becomes close to Kishen and, in the company of Meena Kapoor, begins to come into his own as an individual. Then tragedy strikes-Meena’s death evastates Rusty, and he leaves Dehra. Rusty and Kishen take to the open road, and their adventures accumulate as they tramp through the Doon valley and the Garhwal hills.
Full of incident as well as introspection, this is a book older children will thoroughly enjoy.
