Miracle at Happy Bazaar is the biggest and best book of children’s tales by Ruskin Bond. The book hit the shelves on 10th April 2020 and has been published by Aleph Book Company. The 50 stories in this book have been personally selected by the author.
The book includes gems that have never been published before like ‘Miracle at Happy Bazaar’, ‘Chocolates at Midnight’, ‘Life is Sweet, Brother’, and ‘The Old Suitcase’ as well as classics that have delighted generations such as ‘The Blue Umbrella’, ‘Angry River’, ‘Panther’s Moon’, ‘The Room of Many Colours’, and ‘The Cherry Tree’.
Illustrated throughout, this is Ruskin Bond’s ultimate book for young readers. Many of these tales are filled with the author’s special brand of gentle humour. Others are rip-roaring adventure yarns. There are accounts of ghosts to give you a fright and mysteries and thrillers to keep you awake at night. Animals are a favorite theme and this collection is full of tigers, panthers, crocodiles, pythons, monkeys, bears, elephants, ostriches, and even a cassowary. There are tales of mischief, and others of magic, those with romance in them, many that speak of the joy and innocence of childhood.
