Folio Society: Just So Stories

    £25.95 Members' price *


    A Folio edition of the classic children's book Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling, illustrated with Kipling's own drawings.

    Originally told as bedtime stories for Kipling's daughter Josephine, Just So Stories remains a classic of children's literature; simply and beautifully written, with a believable vision of the wonder and dangers of the natural world.

    The Elephant's Child wrestles with a crocodile on the banks of the 'great grey-green, greasy Limpopo river'; Stickly-Prickly hedgehog and Slow-and-Solid tortoise turn themselves into an armadillo to foil the predatory ambitions of Painted Jaguar; and the Ethiopian helps a Leopard to become invisible in the speckly shadows of the forest.


    Bound in full cloth.
    Illustrated with Kipling's own drawings.
    Book size: 9 1/2 inches by 6 1/4 inches, 192 pages.
