Just So Stories
- This format is currently out of stock.
These wonderful and fanciful stories delight adult and child alike with their amusing and clever responses to such questions as how the leopard got his spots or why an elephant has a trunk. Kipling was born in India of English parents, and the impressions that exotic and fascinating country left on him in his early years would influence his writing in later years. Even in the deceptively simple Just So Stories, the reader recognizes Kipling's gifted ear for language and his vivid imagery.</p>
