9780099582588: Just So Stories

Kipling's classic collection of origin stories

Have you ever inquired why the elephant has such an enormously elongated nose? Are you confused by a cat's contrariness? Have you ruminated on the wrinkles of a rhinocerous, or speculated how the leopard got its spots? Rudyard Kipling wondered about all these things too, and in this marvelous collection of stories he imagines how the animals became "just so." Extra materials in the back include a quiz, more information on Rudyard Kipling, interesting animal facts, and an interview with Phillip Pullman on why he loves Just So Stories.

From the Inside Flap:

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.

About the Author:

Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) is best known for The Jungle Book, Just So Stories, and Kim. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907.
