Excellent Stories!!

I grew up with my Mom reading the Just So Stories to me. They were clever and I enjoyed them thoroughly. I don't think I can ever forget the way my Mom used to read The Elephant's Child to me. She'd would always use funny voices. I highly recommend this book. I garantee...

Look elsewhere for the fables -- the formatting is terrible

    Good stories, badly formatted.

    Just So Storied are some of Kipling's best for small and even not-so-small children. However, this version seems to be a badly scanned and OCR'd example. The table of contents does not link properly, thete are typographical errors, pictures do not fully display, switching between portrait and landscape mode does not work.

    All that said, the stories are still readable and delightful.
