Book:Rudyard Kipling's Just so stories:2018 Book
Author: Woollard, Elli
Author: Altes, Marta
Author: Kipling, Rudyard, Just so stories
Author: Henry, Lenny
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Short story
Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Delightfully retold in humorous verse, with beautiful illustrations throughout, this is a beautiful reworked edition of Rudyard Kipling's children's classic, 'Just So Stories.' In this stunning illustrated collection meet the cat who walked by himself, discover how the lazy camel got his hump, how the elephant got his long trunk, find out why the rhino has such wrinkly skin and how the whale got his teeny tiny throat. These well known, richly imagined stories tell of how the world came to be as it is. This is a smart, funny and younger approach to Kipling's work, and 'Just So Stories' as you've never seen them before.
