Description

Pick up an alien's egg; go crocodile hunting; run with a gang of pickpockets; get lost in a magical maze. All this and more in these stories of adventure, humour and imagination. Oliver Twist leaves behind his gang of criminals for a better life; an open window is just what a fertile mind needs in Saki's 'The Open Window'; Satyajit Ray's Badan Babu has a brush with a Pterodactyl's egg; Rabindranath Tagore recollects boyhood days spent dreaming in an abandoned palanquin; and Sherlock Holmes sets off to solve the mystery of the engineer's thumb. Featuring the works of such renowned authors as Charles Dickens, Louisa May Alcott, Premchand, Mark Twain and others, and a lively introduction by well-known children's author Paro Anand, The Puffin Book of Classic Stories for Boys is a matchless collection from the masters of world literature for boys of all ages.
