Amazon.com description: Product Description: This is Rudyard Kipling’s 1902 children’s book, "Just So Stories for Little Children". It is a delightful and timeless collection of children’s stories that makes for perfect bedtime reading. The stories are primarily animal-based, and constitute some of Kipling’s best-known works. They include: “How the Whale Got His Throat”, “How The Camel Got His Hump”, “How The Rhinoceros Got His Skin”, “How The Leopard Got His Spots”, “The Elephant’s Child”, “The Sing-Song of Old Man Kangaroo”, and many more. Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865 - 1936) was an English poet, novelist, and short-story writer. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
