New Fiction for the Young (In 3 Books)

 
Manoj Das (Author) Ruskin Bond (Author)
Synopsis BOOK I: New fiction for the young-The Fourth Friend. India is land of stories, rich in legends, parables and myths. Chandamama has enriched many generations of young minds with these stories. Saraswati Samman and Sahitya Akademi Award winner Manoj Das is one of their finest contributors. This book warmly invites you to the little world of the four friends and become the fifth member of their company. The illustrations are by renowned artist Sisir Datta. The Fourth Friend-The backdrop of this story is an Indian village, going back to the time of the author's boyhood. Things like electricity, telephone, or radio-not to speak of the TV-were then no more familiar to the villagers than the Arctic or the Antarctic. The manually handled gramophone with round disc records (before the cassette and record-player came into vogue) or a touring cinema was a real miracle. Much has changed during the past few decades in rural India. But even today, a flood can turn a village into a tiny island. Besides, the characters depicted in the story are as real today as they were yesterday. The book warmly invites you to be transported to the little world of the four friends and become the fifth member of their company. BOOK II: New fiction for the young-When the Trees Walked. The IBBY's Hans Christian Andersen Award and Sahitya Akademi Award winner Ruskin Bond writes regularly for Chandamama. These delightful stories are full of mystery, adventure and a love for nature. The illustrations are by renowned artist Sisir Datta.  BOOK III: New fiction for the young-Legend of the Golden Valley. Here is a fairytale with a difference where you travel with the hero into strange lands and meet weird characters, pass through funny situations and unusual adventures. The illustrations are by renowned artist Sisir Datta. Legend of the Golden Valley- Once upon a time, a happy young prince had a nice little valley for his kingdom. The good folks were ruled by their own goodness, leaving the prince to pursue his own inspiration. Alas, nothing lasts forever on this earth. There was a turmoil, and a tyrant usurped the kingdom. The people were so unhappy! But, again, how nice it is that nothing lasts!
