Synopsis

Big Book of Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling

Big Book of Just So Stories is a delightful compendium for children aged 3+, presenting four of Rudyard Kipling's brilliantly funny Just So Stories across large format pages of full-bled artwork scenes. Every page showcases beautiful illustrations packed with charm and detail that will enthrall younger children. Stories included are How the Leopard got his Spots, How the Camel got his Hump, How the Rhinoceros got his Skin, and How the Whale got his Throat. They have been carefully retold to appeal to younger readers, and the book has been produced on thicker paper to help little hands turn each page more easily.

About the Author

Rudyard Kipling

Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay in 1865. He was educated in England but returned to India as an adult and worked as a journalist. There, he produced stories, sketches and poems that made him a literary celebrity when he returned to England in 1888. After their marriage, Kipling and his wife moved to Vermont, where he wrote The Jungle Book. Published in 1894, it became a children's classic all over the world. Tales of every kind, including historical and science fiction, continued to flow from his pen, including Kim (1901) and the Just So Stories (1902). From 1902 Kipling made his home in Sussex, but continued to travel widely and caught his first glimpse of warfare in South Africa, where he reported in the Boer War. Kipling was the recipient of many honorary degrees and other awards. He was the first writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize, in 1907, and in 1926 he received the Gold Medal of the royal Society of Literature. Kipling died in 1936.
