Description

“Since he was a young boy, Ruskin Bond has made friends easily. And some of the most rewarding and lasting friendships he has known have been with animals, birds and plantsÑbig and small; outgoing and
shy. This collection focuses on these companions and brings together his finest essays and stories, both classic and new. There are leopards and tigers, wise old forest oaks and geraniums on sunny balconies, a talking parrot and a tomcat called Suzie, bears in the mountains and kingfishers in Delhi, a family of langurs and a lonely batÑand many more ‘wild’ friends, some of an instant, others of several years.
Beautifully illustrated by Shubhadarshini Singh, this is a gift for nature- and book-lovers of all ages.”
