The Railway Children (Puffin Classics) | The Jungle Book (Illustrated by John L. Kipling, William H. Drake, and Paul Frenzeny) | Walt Disney's the Jungle Book | Rikki-tikki-tavi | The Classic Treasury of Aesop's Fables | The Wind in the Willows | A Collection of Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories
These twelve magical tales tell, among other things, how the camel got his hump, the leopard his spots, the elephant his trunk, how the alphabet was made and how a butterfly caused mayhem at the court of King Solomon when he stamped. The Just So Stories are one of the enduring classics of children's literature, not only for their wit, enchantment and language but also for Kipling's own illustrations.
