How did the whale get his throat? Why was the lazy camel lumbered with a hump? And how did the elephant's insatiable curiosity earn him a trunk? Conjuring up distant lands and exotic jungles, these imaginative tales are bewitching for both children and adults. This new edition brings together the complete and unabridged text (including the 13th story, "The Tabu Tale," often excluded from modern publications).
Just So Stories Hardback edition by Rudyard Kipling
Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was one of the most popular writers in English of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was the youngest and the first English-speaking Nobel laureate. Robert Ingpen was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal in 1986 for his contribution to children's literature and he has been honored with Membership of the Order of Australia.
Mowgli, the man-cub who is brought up by wolves in the jungles of Central India, is one of the greatest literary myths ever created. As he embarks on a series of thrilling escapades, Mowgli encounters such unforgettable creatures as Bagheera, the graceful black panther, and Shere Khan, the tiger with the blazing eyes.
This novel tells the story of Kimball O'Hara (Kim), who is the orphaned son of a soldier in the Irish regiment stationed in India during the British Raj. It describes Kim's life and adventures from street vagabond, to his adoption by his father's regiment and recruitment into espionage.
How did the camel get his hump? Why won't cats do as they are told? How did an inquisitive little elephant change the lives of elephants everywhere?
Kipling's imagined answers to such questions draw on the beast fables of India, and they are full of jokes, subtexts, and exotic references. This fully illustrated edition includes two extra stories and Kipling's own explanation of the title.
These witty stories were originally told by Kipling to his own children. In them he gives fanciful accounts of how and why things came to be as they are. Stories include how the leopard got his spots, and the beginning of armadillos.
With a beautiful cover and chapter-heading illustrations throughout from queen of colouring Johanna Basford. Raised by wolves and guided by Baloo the bear, Mowgli and his animal friends embark on a series of hair-raising adventures through the jungles of India.
