It represents for the first time the richness and range of writing for children in India during the twentieth century. From Ruskin Bond's humorous 'Snake Trouble' and Vikram Seth's animal fable in verse 'The Elephant and the Tragopan', to Salman Rushdie's fantasy 'Haroun and the Sea of Stories' and Satyajit Ray's gripping tale 'The Hungry Septopus', this anthology has a vibrant mix of styles and forms. With spectacular illustrations by a host of the most talented artists working today, this anthology will delight both children and adults.
