Just So Stories (Illustrated By The Author) (eBook)
Sobre o livro
First published in 1902, Just So Stories is Rudyard Kiplings classic collection of animal fables and poetry. This collection grew out of nighttime story-telling between Rudyard and his daughter Josephine. The peculiar name is drawn from her insistence that these tales, which were origin stories describing how animals got their most distinctive features, be told just so. This volume reproduces the complete edition of Just So Stories which includes the following stories: 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 Elephants Child, The Sing-Song of Old Man Kangaroo, The Beginning of the Armadillos, How The First Letter Was Written, How The Alphabet Was Made, The Crab That Played With The Sea, The Cat That Walked By Himself, The Tabu Tale, and The Butterfly That Stamped. This edition includes the original illustrations by the author and a biographical afterword.
