Just So Stories

How did the camel get his hump? How did the leopard get his spots? Why won’t cats do as they are told? How did a nosy little elephant change the lives of elephants everywhere?

Rudyard Kipling’s exotic and much-loved animal stories draw upon the traditional folk-tales of Africa and India to explore the origins and characteristics of all the jungle beasts. These enchanting and funny tales have delighted generations of readers, and are now paired with an inspiring new introduction from Jonathan Stroud, author of the Bartimaeus Trilogy.
