He wrote his first novel, The Room on the Roof, when he was seventeen which won John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize in 1957.

He now lives with his adopted family in Landour near Mussoorie.ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: PARIKH- A student of Animation Film Design from the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad, Parikh had just quit her job at the time and was taking freelance projects. Andheri-based Parikh's collaboration with the veteran writer 'Bond', began when a friend introduced her work to Natraj Publishers. Parikh comes from an animation background and love comics. She thought it would be fun to add a comic book-style narrative to the stories. However, it was too casual and cartoon-y for Ruskin Bond's taste, and very different from the way his books have been done all these years. A feeling of achievement comes to her when people started reacting to the book, which is a wonderful blend of Bond's inimitable narrative and Parikh's engaging artwork.
