About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. COMPLETE CLASSICS - Just So Stories for Little Children by Rudyard Kipling - The Just So Stories for Little Children are a collection written by the British author Rudyard Kipling. Highly fantasised origin stories, especially for differences among animals, they are among Kipling s best known works. The stories, first published in 1902, are pourquoi (French for why ) or origin stories, fantastic accounts of how various phenomena came about. A forerunner of these stories is Kipling s How Fear Came, included in his The Second Jungle Book (1895). In it, Mowgli hears the story of how the tiger got his stripes. The Just So Stories typically have the theme of a particular animal being modified from an original form to its current form by the acts of man, or some magical being. For example, the Whale has a tiny throat because he swallowed a mariner, who tied a raft inside to block the whale from swallowing other men. The Camel has a hump given to him by a djinn as punishment for the camel s refusing to work (the hump allows the camel to work longer between times of eating). The Leopard s spots were painted by an Ethiopian (after the Ethiopian painted himself black). The Kangaroo gets its powerful hind legs, long tail, and hopping gait after being chased all day by a dingo, sent by a minor god responding to the Kangaroo s request to be made different from all other animals.

The stories, first published in 1902, are pourquoi stories, fantastic accounts of how various phenomena came about. A forerunner of these stories is How Fear Came in The Second Jungle Book (1895), in which Mowgli hears the story of how the tiger got his stripes. Joseph Rudyard Kipling (December 30, 1865 - January 18, 1936) was an English author and poet, born in India, and best known today for his children s books, including The Jungle Book (1894), The Second Jungle Book (1895), Just So Stories (1902), and Puck of Pook s Hill (1906); his novel, Kim (1901); his poems, including Mandalay (1890), Gunga Din (1890), and If- (1910); and his many short stories, including The Man Who Would Be King (1888) and the collections Life s Handicap (1891), The Day s Work (1898), and Plain Tales from the Hills (1888). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story ; his children s books are enduring classics of children s literature; and his best work speaks to a versatile and luminous narrative gift. Kipling was one of the most popular writers in English, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The author Henry James famously said of him: Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius (as distinct from fine intelligence) that I have ever known. In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English language writer to receive the prize, and he remains today its youngest-ever recipient. Among other honours, he was sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, all of which he rejected. However, later in life Kipling also came to be seen (in George Orwell s words) as a prophet of British imperialism. Many saw prejudice and militarism in his works, and the resulting controversy about him continued for much of the 20th century. According to critic Douglas Kerr: He is still an author who can inspire passionate disagreement and his place in literary and cultural history is far from settled. But as the age of the European empires recedes, he is recognized as an incomparable, if controversial, interpreter of how empire was experienced. That, and an increasing recognition of his extraordinary narrative gifts, make him a force to be reckoned with. Source: Wikipedia. Seller Inventory # APC9781544011462

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Illustrated. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Just So Stories for Little Children is a 1902 collection of origin stories by the British author Rudyard Kipling. Considered a classic of children s literature, the book is among Kipling s best known works. Kipling began working on the book by telling the first three chapters as bedtime stories to his daughter Josephine. These had to be told just so (exactly in the words she was used to) or she would complain. The stories describe how one animal or another acquired its most distinctive features, such as how the Leopard got his spots. For the book, Kipling illustrated the stories himself. The stories have appeared in a variety of adaptations including a musical and animated films. Evolutionary biologists have noted that what Kipling did in fiction, they have done in reality, providing explanations for the evolutionary development of animal features.The stories, first published in 1902, are origin stories, fantastic accounts of how various features of animals came to be. A forerunner of these stories is Kipling s How Fear Came, in The Second Jungle Book (1895). In it, Mowgli hears the story of how the tiger got his stripes.The Just So Stories each tell how a particular animal was modified from an original form to its current form by the acts of man, or some magical being. For example, the Whale has a tiny throat because he swallowed a mariner, who tied a raft inside to block the whale from swallowing other men. The Camel has a hump given to him by a djinn as punishment for the camel s refusing to work (the hump allows the camel to work longer between times of eating). The Leopard s spots were painted by an Ethiopian (after the Ethiopian painted himself black). The Kangaroo gets its powerful hind legs, long tail, and hopping gait after being chased all day by a dingo, sent by a minor god responding to the Kangaroo s request to be made different from all other animals. The Just So Stories began as bedtime stories told to his daughter Effie [Josephine, Kipling s firstborn]; when the first three were published in a children s magazine, a year before her death, Kipling explained: in the evening there were stories meant to put Effie to sleep, and you were not allowed to alter those by one single little word. They had to be told just so; or Effie would wake up and put back the missing sentence. So at last they came to be like charms, all three of them, -the whale tale, the camel tale, and the rhinoceros tale. . Joseph Rudyard Kipling ( 30 December 1865 - 18 January 1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. Kipling s works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including The Man Who Would Be King (1888).His poems include Mandalay (1890), Gunga Din (1890), The Gods of the Copybook Headings (1919), The White Man s Burden (1899), and If- (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children s books are classics of children s literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting a versatile and luminous narrative gift.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Second Jungle Book is a sequel to The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. First published in 1895, it features five stories about Mowgli and three unrelated stories, all but one set in India, most of which Kipling wrote while living in Vermont. Contents of The Second Jungle Book Each story is followed by a related poem How Fear Came : This story takes place before Mowgli fights Shere Khan. During a drought, Mowgli and the animals gather at a shrunken river for a water truce , during which Hathi the elephant tells the story of how the first tiger got his stripes. This story can be seen as a forerunner of the Just So Stories. The Law of the Jungle (poem) The Miracle of Purun Bhagat : An influential Indian politician abandons his worldly goods to become an ascetic holy man. Later he must save a village from a landslide with the help of the local animals whom he has befriended. A Song of Kabir (poem) Letting in the Jungle : Mowgli has been driven out of the human village for witchcraft, and the superstitious villagers are preparing to kill his adopted parents Messua and her (unnamed) husband.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Just So Stories for Little Children is a 1902 collection of origin stories by the British author Rudyard Kipling. Considered a classic of children s literature, the book is among Kipling s best known works. Kipling began working on the book by telling the first three chapters as bedtime stories to his daughter Josephine. These had to be told just so (exactly in the words she was used to) or she would complain. The stories describe how one animal or another acquired its most distinctive features, such as how the Leopard got his spots. For the book, Kipling illustrated the stories himself. The stories have appeared in a variety of adaptations including a musical and animated films. Evolutionary biologists have noted that what Kipling did in fiction, they have done in reality, providing explanations for the evolutionary development of animal features.The stories, first published in 1902, are origin stories, fantastic accounts of how various features of animals came to be. A forerunner of these stories is Kipling s How Fear Came, in The Second Jungle Book (1895). In it, Mowgli hears the story of how the tiger got his stripes.The Just So Stories each tell how a particular animal was modified from an original form to its current form by the acts of man, or some magical being. For example, the Whale has a tiny throat because he swallowed a mariner, who tied a raft inside to block the whale from swallowing other men. The Camel has a hump given to him by a djinn as punishment for the camel s refusing to work (the hump allows the camel to work longer between times of eating). The Leopard s spots were painted by an Ethiopian (after the Ethiopian painted himself black). The Kangaroo gets its powerful hind legs, long tail, and hopping gait after being chased all day by a dingo, sent by a minor god responding to the Kangaroo s request to be made different from all other animals. The Just So Stories began as bedtime stories told to his daughter Effie [Josephine, Kipling s firstborn]; when the first three were published in a children s magazine, a year before her death, Kipling explained: in the evening there were stories meant to put Effie to sleep, and you were not allowed to alter those by one single little word. They had to be told just so; or Effie would wake up and put back the missing sentence. So at last they came to be like charms, all three of them, -the whale tale, the camel tale, and the rhinoceros.

The stories, first published in 1902, are pourquoi stories, fantastic accounts of how various phenomena came about. A forerunner of these stories is How Fear Came in The Second Jungle Book (1895), in which Mowgli hears the story of how the tiger got his stripes. Joseph Rudyard Kipling (December 30, 1865 - January 18, 1936) was an English author and poet, born in India, and best known today for his children s books, including The Jungle Book (1894), The Second Jungle Book (1895), Just So Stories (1902), and Puck of Pook s Hill (1906); his novel, Kim (1901); his poems, including Mandalay (1890), Gunga Din (1890), and If- (1910); and his many short stories, including The Man Who Would Be King (1888) and the collections Life s Handicap (1891), The Day s Work (1898), and Plain Tales from the Hills (1888). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story ; his children s books are enduring classics of children s literature; and his best work speaks to a versatile and luminous narrative gift. Kipling was one of the most popular writers in English, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The author Henry James famously said of him: Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius (as distinct from fine intelligence) that I have ever known. In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English language writer to receive the prize, and he remains today its youngest-ever recipient. Among other honours, he was sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, all of which he rejected. However, later in life Kipling also came to be seen (in George Orwell s words) as a prophet of British imperialism. Many saw prejudice and militarism in his works, and the resulting controversy about him continued for much of the 20th century. According to critic Douglas Kerr: He is still an author who can inspire passionate disagreement and his place in literary and cultural history is far from settled. But as the age of the European empires recedes, he is recognized as an incomparable, if controversial, interpreter of how empire was experienced. That, and an increasing recognition of his extraordinary narrative gifts, make him a force to be reckoned with. Source: Wikipedia. Seller Inventory # APC9781539409083

In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date. Among other honours, he was sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, all of which he declined. Kipling s subsequent reputation has changed according to the political and social climate of the age and the resulting contrasting views about him continued for much of the 20th century. George Orwell called him a prophet of British imperialism. Literary critic Douglas Kerr wrote: He [Kipling] is still an author who can inspire passionate disagreement and his place in literary and cultural history is far from settled. But as the age of the European empires recedes, he is recognised as an incomparable, if controversial, interpreter of how empire was experienced. That, and an increasing recognition of his extraordinary narrative gifts, make him a force to be reckoned with. Seller Inventory # APC9781503079656

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The Second Jungle Book is a sequel to The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. First published in 1895, it features five stories about Mowgli and three unrelated stories, all but one set in India, most of which Kipling wrote while living in Vermont. All of the stories were previously published in magazines in 1894-5, often under different titles. The original book is now worth $3.4 million Each story is followed by a related poem: How Fear Came : This story takes place before Mowgli fights Shere Khan. During a drought, Mowgli and the animals gather at a shrunken Wainganga River for a Water Truce where the display of the blue-colored Peace Rock prevents anyone from hunting at its riverbanks. After Shere Khan was driven away by him for nearly defiling the Peace Rock, Hathi the elephant tells Mowgli the story of how the first tiger got his stripes when fear first came to the jungle. This story can be seen as a forerunner of the Just So Stories. The Law of the Jungle (poem) The Miracle of Purun Bhagat : An influential Indian politician abandons his worldly goods to become an ascetic holy man. Later, he must save a village from a landslide with the help of the local animals whom he has befriended. A Song of Kabir (poem) Letting in the Jungle : Mowgli has been driven out of the human village for witchcraft, and the superstitious villagers are preparing to kill his adopted parents Messua and her unnamed husband. Mowgli rescues them and then prepares to take revenge. Mowgli s Song Against People (poem) The Undertakers : A mugger crocodile, a jackal and an adjutant stork (erroneously referred to as a crane in the story), three of the most unpleasant characters on the river, spend an afternoon bickering with each other until some Englishmen arrive to settle some unfinished business with the crocodile. A Ripple Song (poem) The King s Ankus : Mowgli discovers a jewelled object beneath the Cold Lairs, which he later discards carelessly, not realising that men will kill each other to possess it. Note: the first edition of The Second Jungle Book inadvertently omits the final 500 words of this story, in which Mowgli returns the treasure to its hiding-place to prevent further killings. Although the error was corrected in later printings, it was picked up by some later editions. The Song of the Little Hunter (poem) Quiquern : A teenaged Inuit boy and girl set out across the arctic ice on a desperate hunt for food to save their tribe from starvation, guided by the mysterious animal-spirit Quiquern. However, Quiquern is not what he seems. Angutivaun Taina (poem) Red Dog : Mowgli s wolfpack is threatened by a pack of rampaging dholes. Mowgli asks Kaa the python to help him formulate a plan to defeat them. Chil s Song (poem) The Spring Running : Mowgli, now almost seventeen years old, is growing restless for reasons he cannot understand. On an aimless run through the jungle he stumbles across the village where his adopted mother Messua is now living with her two-year-old son, and is torn between staying with her and returning to the jungle. The Outsong (poem). Seller Inventory # APC9781542649551

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Just So Stories for Little Children is a 1902 collection of origin stories by the British author Rudyard Kipling. Considered a classic of children s literature, the book is among Kipling s best known works. Context: The stories, first published in 1902, are origin stories, fantastic accounts of how various phenomena came about.[1] A forerunner of these stories is Kipling s How Fear Came, included in his The Second Jungle Book (1895). In it, Mowgli hears the story of how the tiger got his stripes. Approach: The Just So Stories each tell how a particular animal was modified from an original form to its current form by the acts of man, or some magical being. For example, the Whale has a tiny throat because he swallowed a mariner, who tied a raft inside to block the whale from swallowing other men. The Camel has a hump given to him by a djinn as punishment for the camel s refusing to work (the hump allows the camel to work longer between times of eating). The Leopard s spots were painted by an Ethiopian (after the Ethiopian painted himself black). The Kangaroo gets its powerful hind legs, long tail, and hopping gait after being chased all day by a dingo, sent by a minor god responding to the Kangaroo s request to be made different from all other animals. Contents: 1. How the Whale Got His Throat - why the larger whales eat only small prey. 2. How the Camel Got His Hump - how the idle camel was punished and given a hump. 3. How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin - why rhinos have folds in their skin and bad tempers. 4. How the Leopard Got His Spots - why leopards have spots. 5. The Elephant s Child/How the Elephant got his Trunk - how the elephant s trunk became long. 6. The Sing-Song of Old Man Kangaroo - how the kangaroo assumed long legs and tail. 7. The Beginning of the Armadillos - how a hedgehog and tortoise transformed into the first armadillos. 8. How the First Letter Was Written - introduces the only characters who appear in more than one story: a family of cave-people, called Tegumai Bopsulai (the father), Teshumai Tewindrow (the mother), and Taffimai Metallumai, (the daughter). Explains how Taffimai delivered a picture message to her mother. 9. How the Alphabet Was Made - Taffimai and her father invent an alphabet. 10. The Crab That Played with the Sea - explains the ebb and flow of the tides, as well as how the crab changed from a huge animal into a small one. 11. The Cat That Walked by Himself - the longest story, explains how man domesticated all the wild animals except the cat, which insisted on greater independence. 12. The Butterfly That Stamped - how Solomon saved the pride of a butterfly, and the Queen of Sheba used this to prevent his wives scolding him. 13. The Tabu Tale (missing from most British editions; first appeared in the Scribner edition in the U.S. in 1903). About Kipling: Joseph Rudyard Kipling 30 December 1865 - 18 January 1936 was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist.

His poems include Mandalay (1890), Gunga Din (1890), The Gods of the Copybook Headings (1919), The White Man s Burden (1899), and If- (1910).

About this Item: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 80 pages. Dimensions: 10.0in. x 8.0in. x 0.2in.Just So Stories for Little Children is a 1902 collection of origin stories by the British author Rudyard Kipling. Considered a classic of childrens literature, the book is among Kiplings best known works. Kipling began working on the book by telling the first three chapters as bedtime stories to his daughter Josephine. These had to be told just so (exactly in the words she was used to) or she would complain. The stories describe how one animal or another acquired its most distinctive features, such as how the Leopard got his spots. For the book, Kipling illustrated the stories himself. The stories have appeared in a variety of adaptations including a musical and animated films. Evolutionary biologists have noted that what Kipling did in fiction, they have done in reality, providing explanations for the evolutionary development of animal features. The stories, first published in 1902, are origin stories, fantastic accounts of how various features of animals came to be. A forerunner of these stories is Kiplings How Fear Came, in The Second Jungle Book (1895). In it, Mowgli hears the story of how the tiger got his stripes. The Just So Stories each tell how a particular animal was modified from an original form to its current form by the acts of man, or some magical being. For example, the Whale has a tiny throat because he swallowed a mariner, who tied a raft inside to block the whale from swallowing other men. The Camel has a hump given to him by a djinn as punishment for the camels refusing to work (the hump allows the camel to work longer between times of eating). The Leopards spots were painted by an Ethiopian (after the Ethiopian painted himself black). The Kangaroo gets its powerful hind legs, long tail, and hopping gait after being chased all day by a dingo, sent by a minor god responding to the Kangaroos request to be made different from all other animals. The Just So Stories began as bedtime stories told to his daughter Effie Josephine, Kiplings firstborn; when the first three were published in a childrens magazine, a year before her death, Kipling explained: in the evening there were stories meant to put Effie to sleep, and you were not allowed to alter those by one single little word. They had to be told just so; or Effie would wake up and put back the missing sentence. So at last they came to be like charms, all three of them, the whale tale, the camel tale, and the rhinoceros tale. . . . . . Joseph Rudyard Kipling ( 30 December 1865 18 January 1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. Kiplings works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including The Man Who Would Be King (1888).
