When Bina shifts to a school in Nauti, which is a long way from Koli, her village, she must daily cross the mountain, the river and walk through the jungle to get there. She is accompanied by Prakash, a boisterous twelve year old and Sonu, her excitable younger brother. Together, they have many adventures, from helping old Mr. Mani save his potatoes from porcupines to visiting the town of Tehri and from escaping a landslide to encountering a leopard in the jungle. A touching and warm story by Ruskin Bond, this beautifully illustrated book showcases life in the hills and the wonders of friendship and bravery

An attractive edition of one of Ruskin Bond's most popular stories.

Ideal for young readers with its large font and eye-catching illustrations.

A beautiful introduction to the works of Ruskin Bond for children.
