    All these tales are like Aesop s fables about how various animals got their characteristic features They are beautiful short tales most likely derived from folk legends that Kipling heard during his time in Africa and India but still full of humour and subtle wisdom Unlike Kim, his pro emp...

    This was an adorably sweet collection of stories, aimed at younger readers and all centring around the themes of animals Whilst not scientifically correct in the least, this offered the reader a series of fun anecdotes about how various different animals got their defining features, such as a leopard and his spots and an elephant with his trunk.My main source of enjoyment with this book came from its amusing usage of language Alliterative terms, onomatopoeic phrases, odd pairings of words, and This was an adorably sweet collection of stories, aimed at younger readers and all centring around the themes of animals Whilst not scientifically correct in the least, this offered the reader a series of fun anecdotes about how various different animals got their defining features, such as a leopard and his spots and an elephant with his trunk.My main source of enjoyment with this book came from its amusing usage of language Alliterative terms, onomatopoeic phrases, odd pairings of words, and colourful imagery dotted each paragraph, making this both a highly visual read and one that would really shine when read aloud.Whilst I did find this a fun and entertaining little read I did also find that the nature of each story began to...

    Beautiful and wonderful Works of genius by a man who freed himself enough that he could give himself up to that genius instead of trying to make sure that it came out perfectly As pleasing as his other works are, none I ve read can match the joy, humor, simplicity, and odd truth of these Like children s literature should be, these s...

    Loved all the stories, but my personal favorite was about Elephant s Child Sometimes satiable curiosity doesn t kill you it gets you a very practical appendage with which you can spank your bossy Relatives and hove them into a wasp s nest And let s face it, O Best Beloved, we ve all had that i...
