The parables are written in the form of what came to be known as “why” stories, each explaining how and why certain things came to be as they are.In addition to these clever fables, this volume features thirteen full-color illustrations and more than thirty black-and-white illustrations by J. M. Gleeson and Paul Bransom, as well as several images created by Kipling himself. With their entertaining characters and well-executed narrative arcs, the Just So Stories are perfect for readers both young and old—to read separately and, more importantly, together.
