Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling
In this irrisistible edition of Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories the characters come to life at the hand of Robert Ingpen.
A hard cover collection of incredible tales from master storyteller Rudyard Kipling. 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 his trunk?
Kipling first invented these delightful, warm and humorous stories about the beginning of the world and the first animals in it forhis own daughter, Josephine.
This sumptuous new edition brings together the complete unabridged text (including the thirteenth story, The Tabu Tale, which is often excluded from modern publications). Award winning artist Robert Ingpen has interpreted and enriched the stories with stunning new illustrations that bring an unforgettable cast of extraordinary animal characters to life.
