Overview
In this gorgeous collection featuring eight of Kipling's JUST SO STORIES, each tale is illustrated by a different leading contemporary artist.
How did the rude Rhinoceros get his baggy skin? How did a 'satiably curious Elephant change the lives of his kin evermore? First told aloud to his young daughter ("O my Best Beloved"), Rudyard Kipling's inspired answers to these and other burning questions draw from the fables he heard as a child in India and the folktales he gathered from around the world. Now, in this sumptuous volume, Kipling's playful, inventive tales are brought to life by eight of today's celebrated illustrators, from Peter Sis's elegantly graphic cetacean in "How the Whale Got His Throat" to Satoshi Kitamura's amusingly expressive characters in "The Cat That Walked by Himself." From one of the world's greatest storytellers come eight classic tales just begging to be heard by a new generation and a visual feast that offers a reward with every retelling.

Candlewick Press has just released a stunning collection of Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories. First published in 1902, Kipling's imaginative tales grew out of his daughter's questions: How did the camel get his humps? How did the leopard get his spots? With new illustrations by top contemporary artists like Peter Sìs and Satoshi Kitamura, this beautifully designed book is an excellent choice for bedtime read-alouds.
