About this title

Synopsis:

Kipling’s Just So Stories has delighted generations of readers with its imaginative tales of how animals came to be ‘just so’. With enchanting backdrops of deserts and seas, palaces and jungles, Kipling ponders such unknowns as how the leopard got his spots, the rhinoceros his skin, and the camel his hump. The result is a magical collection of poems, tales and fables to charm readers of all ages.

From the Back Cover:

How did the camel get his hump? Why won't cats do as they are told? Who invented reading and writing? How did an inquisitive little elephant change the lives of elephants everywhere? Kipling's imagined answers to such questions draw on the beast fables he heard as a child in India, as well as on folk games with language, exploring the relationships between thought, speech, and the written word. He also celebrates his own joy in fatherhood. The tales were told to his own and his friends' children over many years before he wrote them down, adding poems and his own illustrations. They invite older and younger readers to share a magical experience, each contributing to the other's pleasure, but each can also enjoy them alone, as more jokes, subtexts, and exotic references emerge with every reading. This fully illustrated edition includes two extra stories and Kipling's own explanation of the title.
