Just So Stories: For Little Children (World's Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 of this classic includes two extra stories and Kipling's own explanation of the title.

Synopsis:

How did the camel get his hump? Why won't cats do as they are told? Who invented reading and writing? Kipling's imagined answers to such questions draw on the beast fables he heard as a child in India, as well as on folk traditions.

Synopsis:

One of the best-loved collections of children's stories of all time that answers such important childhood questions as how the camel got its hump, how the elephant got its trunk, and how the alphabet was made. 35 illustrations by the author.
