Reviews

Robert Ingpen's delicately rendered, full-colour illustrations also imbue Kipling's characters with a beautiful, quiet dignity that will encourage children to appreciate the different animals, races and cultures presented. Printed on thick, high-quality paper, this is a book that should outlast the many re-readings it deserves. * Reading Time *
