Description

Marked by the signature charm and subtle wit of one of India's best loved writers, Ruskin Bond's Book of Humour will make even the hardened among us crack a smile. A delectable offering from a writer who not only knows how to make us laugh but also knows how to laugh at himself.

Playful tigers, ghosts, elephants, crows and old favorites like Uncle Ken, Miss Bun, the author's slightly eccentric grandfather and Bond himself weave in and out of the pages of this wildly eclectic, thoroughly delightful and absolutely irresistible anthology featuring previously unpublished pieces like Respect You Breakfast and Uncle Ken Goes to Sera as well as beloved classics from Bond's books.
