"The Elephant's Child" reveals how pachyderms came by their trunks, and "The Sing-Song of Old Man Kangaroo" discloses the origins of that creature's unique anatomy. "The Cat That Walked by Himself" offers a beguiling description of the special relationship between cats and those they allow to shelter them. Other fables include "How the Camel Got His Hump," "How the Whale Got His Throat," "How the Leopard Got His Spots," "How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin," and five others.
This timeless treasury, now available in a modestly priced edition, promises memorable amusement not only for the children of today but also for yesterday's children, the adults who may remember hearing or reading the stories when they were young.
