The first thing that took our attention while checking this Book was "Ruskin Bond". Though we considered ourself bookworm, we haven't read a single book by him till now. So we started exploring what the book is all about. Later on, we came to know that the book was foreward by Ruskin Bond. As the book was a collection of short stories, we gladly took it.
As given in the description, this book contains short stories written by a student from class 7 to class 12. These were the winner of competition help from 2015 to 2017. Later on, they were personally guided by Sir Ruskin Bond. So the quality of the stories is bound to be good.
As it is a collection of short stories, I don't have the liberty to discuss about the plot. But I can share a few stories that I liked
- The Tree House
- The Return Gift
- An unreciprocated wish
- A day to Remember
As each story is written by a different person, you will find uniqueness from one plot to another. You will also find a different narration style in each story. You will feel that each story is written with clear thought-process. I think attempts like this should keep happening in India to bring literature glory in back. I will give 5 out of 5 stars for each story.
