Description

Distant lands, the beautiful gardens of splendid palaces, the sea, the jungle and its beasts, even the desert, are the exotic settings for these stories. Inspired by Kipling's natural empathy with the animal world the subjects range from the animals themselves to the origins of things.show more

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)show more
