Rudyard Kipling - Author

About the Author

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.

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

Author: Rudyard Kipling, Neil Philip Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/05/2020

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.
