The Complete Just-So Stories : 12 much-loved tales including How the Camel got his Hump, The Elephant's Child, and How the Alphabet was Made Hardback

Illustrated by Isabelle Brent

Description

How did the leopard get his spots? Why won't cats come when they are called? And why do the tides ebb and flow? These delightful tales of porcupines and cats and kangaroos and camels were originally bedtime stories told by Rudyard Kipling to his daughter.

They had to be told 'just-so' as his daughter would delight in putting back a missing sentence if Kipling tried to alter the story.

Imaginative and funny, this collection of fantastical stories were published to high acclaim and have since become a children's classic, loved by children around the world.

With an introduction by folklorist Neil Philip and beautifully illustrated by Isabelle Brent's fine gold paintings, this enchanting edition will continue to delight a new generation of readers.
