The Wind on Haunted Hill
The wild wind pushes open windows, chokes chimneys and blows away garments because it huffs and puffs over the village by Haunted Hill, where Usha, Suresh, and Binya live. It’s even more mighty the day Usha is on her way back from the bazaar. A deep rumble echoes down the slope and a sudden flash of lightning light up the valley as fat drops come raining down.
To find a Home, Usha rushes into the graves on Haunted Hill, creepy against the dark sky.
Inside, the tin roof groans, strange shadows are thrown against the walls and little Usha shivers with fear. For she isn’t alone. A gritty, bloodcurdling story regarding a friendly relationship, courage, and survival, this stunning edition will introduce another lot of young readers to the magic of Ruskin Bond’s craft.
