About the Author:

Born in Kasauli (Himachal Pradesh) in 1934, Ruskin Bond grew up in Jamnagar (Gujarat), Dehradun, New Delhi and Simla. 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 lives in Landour, Mussoorie, with his extended family.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- A story set in the foothills of the Himalayas. Six-year-old Rakhi eats cherries on her way home from the bazaar. She savors each bite, but finally none are left. Her grandfather suggests that she plant one of the seeds, even though few fruit trees grow in their stony soil. As time passes, the small tree survives heavy rains, a hungry goat eating its leaves, and a cart spliting it in two. The years go by, and on Rakhi's tenth birthday, the first pink blossom appears. Clear, uncluttered illustrations mix watercolor and collage to complement this simple, quiet story with universal appeal. --Laura Culberg, Harold Washington Library Center, Chicago
