Publisher's Summary

Stories Short and Sweet by Ruskin Bond is a collection of his choicest short stories, capturing the myriad facets of life in the hills. Humour, nostalgia, love, friendship, trust and betrayal - Bond captures every mood that makes our life worth remembering. From the nostalgia of country life revisited in 'When the Trees Walked', to the beautiful bond of friendship formed between an old widow and a young boy, owing to their shared love of flowers in 'A Bouquet of Love'. From a mischievous ghost in 'A-Haunting He Would Go' to a little boy craving for sweets in 'The Wild Fruit' - this collection encapsulates the magic of extraordinary emotions seen in ordinary lives. Every story is delicately woven into a memorable vignette set within the backdrop of the countryside or middle-class urban life. The vibrancy of the themes and the rich cast of characters make it a fascinating listen.
