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.

Just So Stories A Robert Ingpen Illustrated Classic

Author: Rudyard Kipling Illustrator: Robert Ingpen Format: Hardback Release Date: 27/05/2021

'This was the first book I truly loved and I still marvel at the inventiveness of Rudyard Kipling. In this irresistible edition, the characters come to life at the hand of Ingpen - just as my mother's voice brought them to life when she read them to me.' - Michael Morpurgo ''Before the High and Far-Off Times, O my Best Beloved, came the Time of the Very Beginnings...' So commences the series of incredible tales from master storyteller Rudyard Kipling. How did the whale get his throat? Why was the lazy camel lumbered with a hump? And how did the elephant's insatiable curiosity earn him a trunk? Kipling first invented these delightful, warm and humorous stories about the beginning of the world and the first animals in it for his own daughter, Josephine, who tragically died when she was six. Devastated by her loss, Kipling compiled the stories they had shared together into a treasury, which was first published in 1902. Conjuring up distant lands and exotic jungles, the imaginative tales are bewitching for both children and adults. This new edition brings together the complete and unabridged text (including the thirteenth story, The Tabu Tale, which is often excluded from modern publications). Award-winning artist Robert Ingpen has interpreted and enriched the stories with stunning new illustrations that bring an unforgettable cast of extraordinary animal characters to life.

The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story A Robert Ingpen Illustrated Classic

Author: Rudyard Kipling Illustrator: Robert Ingpen Format: Hardback Release Date: 27/05/2021

'I still marvel at the inventiveness of Rudyard Kipling ... The characters come to life at the hand of Ingpen - just as my mother's voice brought them to life when she read them to me.' Michael Morpurgo From the moment a little naked cub wanders into the lair of Father Wolf and Mother Wolf to the moment when the master of the jungle returns to his own people, Mowgli's adventures comprise a fable of human life. Along with these stories are other animal tales. This is a magnificent new edition of the best-loved story featuring over 50 beautiful illustrations by award-winning Australian illustrator Robert Ingpen. Simply and beautifully written, The Jungle Book remains a classic work of children's literature. The story of Mowgli, the man-cub who is brought up by wolves in the jungles of India is one of the greatest literary myths ever created. A rich and complex fable of animal and human life, Kipling's enduring classic dazzles the imagination with its astonishing descriptive powers and lively sense of adventure. A charming original adaption, for younger readers.
