Description

Fans of Kipling's work will appreciate the new look and newcomers to the classic stories will be taken in by the bold artwork and approachable trim size. -- Publishers Weekly

How did the rude Rhinoceros get his baggy skin? How did a 'satiably curious Elephant change the lives of his kin evermore? First told aloud to his young daughter (O my Best Beloved), Rudyard Kipling's inspired answers to these and other burning questions draw from the fables he heard as a child in India and the folktales he gathered from around the world. In this sumptuous volume, Kipling's playful, inventive tales are brought to life by eight of today's celebrated illustrators, from Peter Sís's elegantly graphic cetacean in How the Whale Got His Throat to Satoshi Kitamura's amusingly expressive characters in The Cat That Walked by Himself. From one of the world's greatest storytellers come eight classic tales just begging to be heard by a new generation -- and a visual feast that offers a reward with every retelling.
