Review:

"Today's children would do well to abandon their computers and iPods for an hour or two and read him" (Griff Rhys Jones Daily Mail)

"Weird and wonderful" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Kipling was one of the greatest wordsmiths of the English language and these fables are told in a simple and irresistible manner. They're timeless" (Martin Bell Daily Express)

"The Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling have always held a fascination for me, and doubtless sparked off my love of India" (H.M The Prince of Wales)

"Kipling is a writer for our times, and for all time" (Roger Moore The Times)

Book Description:

'These stories have the ageless resonance of myth, for beneath his addictive adventures and hypnotic prose, Kipling was grappling with big questions: who are we? Where do we come from? How should we live?' Daily Telegraph
