Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Twenty-eight poems (or parts of poems) reverberate with Kipling's compassion for his fellow humans....introduction details the events of his life and their relationship to his work. With dedication to the structure, rhythm, and rhyme of his craft, Kipling created poetry that, when read aloud, sings to its audience in every phase. Sharpe's exquisite paintings illustrate the exotic quality of the verse, whether of animals in the jungle or ships at sea. Vibrant colors reflect the strong emotions of each poem...The faces of children show humor, trust, curiosity, and moodiness. Familiar lines from 'If' and 'The Ballad of East and West' demonstrate the poet's universal appeal. As in other books in this series, each poem is preceded by background information, and difficult or unfamiliar words are defined...A worthy addition."--School Library Journal.

Synopsis:

He told us how the elephant got its trunk and the leopard its spots, and his classic "Jungle Book" entranced young readers for years even before it inspired a much-loved Disney film. His exquisitely crafted, rhythmic poems practically beg to be read aloud; their musical cadences captivate children. Add to that his humour, sympathetic and finely drawn characters, often deep personal emotions - no wonder Kipling was hugely popular and became the first English writer to win the Noble Prize for Literature. 23 selections include: excerpts from the Just So stories; How the camel got its hump; If...; The cat who walked by himself; Mandalay; The Ballad of East & West
