9781405267397: Just So Stories

Just how did all the animals come to have each of their special characteristics? How was the alphabet created?

Have you ever wondered how the Leopard got his spots, how the Rhinosaurus got his skin, or how the Alphabet was made? This witty and wonderful collection embarks upon a fanciful voyage to unearth the answers to these very questions, and more. The Just So Stories have long been regarded as a true classic of children's literature. This Heritage edition is published with Rudyard Kipling's original 1902 drawings, and color illustrations by Chris Riddell.

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.

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.
