Description

These witty stories were originally told by Rudyard Kipling to his own children. In them he gives fanciful accounts of how and why things came to be as they are. Generations of children have delighted to learn how the Leopard got his spots, how the Elephant's Child on the banks of the great grey-green Limpopo acquired his trunk with the help of the Crocodile, and the beginning of the Armadillos. Beautifully illustrated in black-and-white by the author, these delightful tales will hold the reader and listener spellbound.

Review Text

An unusually handsome presentation of these classic stories, with sophisticated woodcuts that will commend it especially (but not exclusively) to older children. Frampton provides one full-page color illustration for each story, with a broad border of a reiterated motif from the story framing a closely structured composition - boldly stylized yet reflecting the story's lively action and wit; additional vignettes enliven the generously spaced text. An excellent edition for home or library. (Kirkus Reviews)
