The Adventures of Rusty Collected Stories By Ruskin Bond
The Adventures Of Rusty: Collected Stories has been written by Ruskin Bond, one of India’s most-loved authors of children’s books.

Rusty’s unexpected confrontation with a leopard and his experience of life as a young author in London are described in some of the stories. The tales in this book are funny, adventurous, and above all, thought-provoking. They can be enjoyed by young readers as well as older readers.
