Since he was a young boy, Ruskin Bond has made friends easily. And some of the most rewarding and lasting friendships he has known have been with animals, birds and plants-big and small; outgoing and shy. This collection focuses on these companions and brings together his finest essays and stories, both classic and new. There are leopards and tigers, wise old forest oaks and geraniums on sunny balconies, a talking parrot and a tomcat called Suzie, bears in the mountains and kingfishers in Delhi, a family of langurs and a lonely bat-and many more 'wild' friends, some of an instant, others of several years.Beautifully illustrated by Shubhadarshini Singh, this is a gift for nature-and book-lovers of all ages.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from How To Tame Beasts And Other Wild Things(The Wild Things #1) This is the kind of book where I had to reread certain pages just to make sure I actually read what I think I just read. It’s the kind of book where I went to check reviews halfway through to see if anyone would call attention to all the crazy. The kind of book where I had many moments of thinking: LOL, did that really just happen? The kind of book that had me going: Oh for the love of god, WHAT NOW?! This book is the reason we can’t have nice things. Quirky, funny, seriously sexy and jaw droppingly crazy are all words that I could use to describe this book but perhaps the unusual cover should have tipped me off ? I'm not sure what I expected but it certainly both surprised and entertained me.
