        Uncles, Aunts And Elephants
        "A timeless selection of writings from India's best-loved author

        I know the world's a crowded place,
        And elephants do take up space,
        But if it makes a difference, Lord,
        I'd gladly share my room and board.
        A baby elephant would do...
        But, if he brings his mother too,
        There's Dad's garage. He wouldn't mind.
        To elephants, he's more than kind.
        But I wonder what my Mum would say
        If their aunts and uncles came to stay!

        Ruskin Bond has regaled generations of readers for decades. This delightful collection of poetry, prose and non-fiction brings together some of his best work in a single volume. Sumptuously illustrated, Uncles, Aunts and Elephants is a book to treasure for all times."
