Generations of children have delighted to Kipling's Just So Stories and their whimsical explanations for the reasons behind certain animals' distinctive physical characteristics. This new unabridged edition contains all 12 of these imaginatively conceived tales from a master storyteller.
"The Elephant's Child" reveals how pachyderms came by their trunks, and "The Sing-Song of Old Man Kangaroo" discloses the origins of that creature's unique anatomy. "The Cat That Walked by Himself" offers a beguiling description of the special relationship between cats and those they allow to shelter them. Other fables include "How the Camel Got His Hump," "How the Whale Got His Throat," "How the Leopard Got His Spots," "How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin," and five others.
This timeless treasury, now available in a modestly priced edition, promises memorable amusement not only for the children of today but also for yesterday's children, the adults who may remember hearing or reading the stories when they were young.

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:

Nobel Laureate Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) is best remembered for children's tales such as The Jungle Book as well as his poetry and stories about British soldiers in India, which include "Gunga Din" and The Man Who Would Be King. Kipling was enormously popular at the turn of the 20th century but his reputation declined with the change in attitude toward British imperialism. In recent years Kipling's works have found new acclaim as a vibrant source of literary and cultural history.
