Originally told by Kipling to his own children, these delightful tales are beautifully illustrated in black and white by the author himself. Part of the Alma Junior classics series, this edition contains extra material for young readers.
Famous for his tales of adventure in British India, Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) is one of the most popular writers of all time and the first English-speaking recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Kipling has an Aesopian understanding of animals, of our dealings with them and our curious interrelatedness, interdependence, how we can learn about our own strange behaviour. -- Michael Morpurgo
