In the introductory chapter, Ruskin Bond describes this book as a chance to ‘celebrate holidays with stories about holidays.’ The Puffin Book of Holiday Stories collates tales from 14 of the best writers for young adults and children. The book is about the gentle haze of summer vacations and holidays that pass by in a flash. It is about the final ring of the school bell and days spent with grandparents who spoil the children rotten. The book keeps the younger audiences hooked and sends adults down nostalgia lane. In this book, you will find the struggles of experiencing your first surgery, making friends that last for life, or finding your passion in the written word. And if this isn’t enough to make you smile, then read Sudha Murthy’s The Unending Story. It is a story, in a story, in a story. It is all simple fun, really.
