In this delightful collection, Ruskin Bond takes us to the charming hill-town of Dehradun, where the young narrator lives with his grandparents and a succession of troublesome guests, including a vain python, an affectionate monkey hell-bent on wreaking havoc and an ill-mannered ghost. Even more troublesome, to the narrator at least, are his aunt and uncle who come to visit. The animals of the house, however, are ready to liven things up by starring in hilarious escapades that these long-suffering relatives most unwillingly participate in. About the Author One of India's finest and most popular storytellers, Ruskin Bond is the author of several bestselling novels and collections of short stories, essays and poems. These include The Room on the Roof (winner of the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize), A Flight of Pigeons, Time Stops at Shamli, Our Trees Still Grow in Dehra (winner of the Sahitya Academy Award), Rain in the Mountains, Roads to Mussoorie, and A Little Night Music. He has also, over the years, expertly compiled and edited a number of anthologies.He was awarded the Padma Shri in 1999 and the Delhi Government's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.
