Rating: (5 out of 5) Totally for Children
Reviewer: Akshit Handa from Chandigarh,U.T.,India
Road to the Bazaar is the additional reading book in my school for the 6ths(the class in which I am). Ruskin Bond shows everybody that children are the same world over. Every child in this huge world should read it. They have shown a town brought to life in northern India capturing the people and the atmosphere. The stories convey the message of love, friendship and to be helpful in a interesting way.
