9780143333128: Ranji's Wonderful Bat and Other Stories

I'm going to be a Test Cricketer when I grow up,' he told his mother. 'Of what use will maths be to me?'

From Koki's prize-winning, day-saving catch to Ranji's extraordinary bat, from a thrilling race between two beetles to a crocodile with an appetite for balls, this smashing collection of sports stories, by the country's favourite storyteller, is packed with fun and good cheer.

Written in Bond's inimitable style and laced with generous doses of wit and humour, these stories of triumph and sportsmanship, of mischief and friendship, are sure to completely bowl you over.

About the Author:

Born in Kasauli in 1934, Ruskin Bond grew up in Jamnagar, Dehradun, New Delhi and Shimla. His first novel, The Room on the Roof, written when he was seventeen, received the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize in 1957. Since then he has written over five hundred short stories, essays and novellas (some included in the collections Dust on the Mountains and Classic Ruskin Bond) and more than forty books for children.

He received the Sahitya Akademi Award for English writing in India in 1993, the Padma Shri in 1999, and the Delhi government's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012. He was awarded the Sahitya Akademi's Bal Sahitya Puraskar for his 'total contribution to children's literature' in 2013 and was honoured with the Padma Bhushan in 2014. He lives in Landour, Mussoorie, with his extended family.
