9780140367027: Just So Stories (Puffin Classics)

Kipling's own drawings, with their long, funny captions, illustrate his hilarious explanations of How the Camel Got His Hump, How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin, How the Armadillo Happened, and other animal How's. He began inventing these stories in his American wife's hometown of Brattleboro, Vermont, to amuse his eldest daughter--and they have served ever since as a source of laughter for children everywhere.

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
