The Cat That Walked by Himself (Just So Stories)

 
9780333341360: The Cat That Walked by Himself (Just So Stories)

Originally all the tame animals were wild, but especially the Cat: he walked by himself and all places were alike to him. The Man was wild too until he met the Woman, who chose a Cave for them to live in, lit a fire in it and hung a horsehide over the opening. She cooked a meal of wild ingredients. Le Chien était sauvage, et le Cheval était sauvage, et la Vache était sauvage, et le Cochon était sauvage — et ils se promenaient par les Chemins Mouillés du Bois Sauvage, tous sauvages et solitairement. Mais le plus sauvage de tous était le Chat. Il se promenait seul et tous lieux se valaient pour lui. Naturellement, l’Homme était sauvage aussi. Il était sauvage que c’en était affreux. Il ne commença à s’apprivoiser que du jour où il rencontra la Femme, et elle lui dit qu’elle n’aimait pas la sauvagerie de ses manières. Давным-давно, когда собака была дикая, лошадь была дикая, корова была дикая, овца была дикая, свинья была дикая, и эти дикие животные бродили по сырому дикому лесу. Но самым диким из них был кот. Он гулял один, где ему вздумается, и место для него не имело значения. Разумеется, и человек тоже был диким, совсем диким. Он даже не пытался усовершенствоваться, пока не встретил женщину, которая ему сказала, что ей вовсе не нравится такая дикая жизнь.

Book Description Macmillan Children's Books, London, 1982. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. William Stobbs (illustrator). First Edition. Colour illustrated boards. No ownership marks. Colour illustrations by William Stobbs. 31 pages clean and tight. 'HEAR and attend and listen; for this befell and behappened and became and was, O my Best Beloved, when the Tame animals were wild. The Dog was wild, and the Horse was wild, and the Cow was wild, and the Sheep was wild, and the Pig was wild-as wild as wild could be-and they walked in the Wet Wild Woods by their wild lones. But the wildest of all the wild animals was the Cat. He walked by himself, and all places were alike to him.' So begins the story of 'The Cat That Walked by Himself', one of many stories Kipling created to entertain his own children and those of his friends, inventing ingenious explanations for such conundrums as 'How the Camel Got His Hump'. In 1902, he wrote down these gloriously fanciful tales for publication as the Just So Stories. This beautiful gift edition presents the best-loved story 'The Cat that Walked by Himself' alongside 'How the Camel Got His Hump', 'How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin' and 'The Elephant's Child', and reproduces the author's delightfully evocative original . Size: Lge 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 138549
