Description
Drawing from the oral storytelling traditions of India and Africa, Nobel Prize winner Rudyard Kipling's vigorous, amusing tales offer imaginative answers to unanswered questions about animals and provide little pearls of wisdom. Kipling began inventing these stories in his American wife's hometown of Brattleboro, Vermont, to amuse his eldest daughter. Over 100 years later, these classic tales, filled with playfully clever animals and people, are still entertaining children and adults alike. "How the Camel Got His Hump," "How the Leopard Got His Spots," and "How the Alphabet Was Made" are just three of the twelve enlightening short stories.

display_descriptionHarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. How did the leopard get its spots? Why do the tides ebb and flow? How did the elephant get its trunk? And how was the alphabet made? Rudyard Kipling's classic collection of fables answers the great questions of animal- and humankind, in a fun, eloquent, and magical way - for children and adults alike. Kipling's beautifully imaginative answers echo the animal fables he heard during his childhood in India, paired with the folk tales he collected throughout his life. Kipling's enjoyment in playing with language, as well as his own delight in fatherhood, makes these stories a joy to read aloud, and children will request these tales as bedtime stories again and again. However, adults will also revel in Kipling's fanciful storytelling and gift for language, as every reading uncovers a new joke, subtext, or fascinating embellishment. From the author of The Jungle Book and Kim, Just So Stories is the newest addition to the available canon of Kipling's work available in the handy format of Collins Classics! - Highly collectible, these must-have classics should feature in every family's home library. - Striking and recognisable black and white cover designs, achieving stand-out impact on the bookshelves against the competition. - Available alongside Kipling's The Jungle Book and Kim Features include: - A glossary of Classic Literature: Words and Phrases, adapted from the Collins English Dictionary. - A Life & Times section, detailing information about the author, their work and the time of publication. - A History of Collins, exploring the heritage and established reputation of Collins as a publisher of Classic fiction. Competition: Jungle Book; Jungle Book; Just William (Just William Series Book 1); The House At Pooh Corner; The Wind In The Willows (Coterie Classics With Free Audiobook); The Loving Cup. Rudyard Kipling;Richmal Crompton; A. A. Milne; Kenneth Grahame; Winston Graham; Lewis Carroll;
