Just So Stories -Illustrated by Rudyard Kipling

The stories, first published in 1902, are pourquoi stories, fantastic accounts of how various phenomena came about. A forerunner of these stories is "How Fear Came" in The Second Jungle Book (1895), in which Mowgli hears the story of how the tiger got his stripes.

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was one of the most popular writers in the United Kingdom in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His fiction works include The Jungle Book — a classic of children’s literature — and the rousing adventure novel Kim, as well as books of poems, short stories, and essays. In 1907, at the age of 42, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

I love these stories. I've loved their subtle rhythm and magnificent, genius wording ever since I was a child. Now, my children get the chance to enjoy them read aloud as well, and even in doctor's offices, in stores, anywhere my portable nook goes. Love it! Our favorites: The cat who walked by himself, the Elephant's child, and especially How the camel got his hump. To see Kipling's genius at work, and yet also be able to enjoy what you are reading to your children is a priceless gift. This edition seems whole, and, in the most part, without glaring errors, although the brief poems at the ending of chapters are a bit difficult to read with the stanzas edited oddly.

I had watched a video with one of my granddaughters and it was precious...about how the elephant got his trunk, etc. In this book, there are some very adult stories at the end that I thought very, very inappropriate - I disliked them!! I was very disappointed and will exchange it for credit to a used book store..(I will be a little embarrassed , too!).I do not recommend this book for children and only for parents who wish to read some very strange stories by Kipling.
