Summary

"Just So Stories" is a classic of children's literature, and one of Rudyard Kipling's best known books. It was published in 1902, as a collection of the stories he told his daughter Josephine at bedtime; the little girl insisted that the stories be told "just so" or she would wake up and add the missing sentence, eventually making all these stories like charms, effective if untouched. They depict how one animal or another acquired its distinctive features: delight your children with the tale of how the camel got his lump, how the leopard got his spots, and why rhinos have folds in their skins and bad tempers, among many others. 

This audio includes four different stories : 

  • How The Whale Got His Throat, 
  • How The Camel Got His Hump, 
  • How The Rhinoceros Got His Skin and 
  • How The Leopard Got His Spots.  

Read by Katie Haigh.
