DESCRIPTION

One of the world's greatest storytellers weaves together an unforgettable collection of animal tales, including how the camel got its hump, how the leopard got its spots, and how even a butterfly stamping his leg can change a man's life. Initially written for his own "best beloved," Just So Stories was published in 1902. It has been a favorite for the past century and is certain to be cherished by generations to come.

Kipling began working on the book by telling the first three chapters as bedtime stories to his daughter Josephine. These had to be told "just so ... : a speculative story or explanation of doubtful or unprovable validity that is put forward to account for the origin of something (such as a biological trait) when no verifiable explanation is known When large claims about humans hang on just-so stories about the evolution of animal behavior, a selective reading of the ethnographic record or the casual lumping together of human and animal behavior, the wise should tread warily. Rudyard Kipling told his children gloriously fanciful tales of how things in the world came to be as they are.
