The twelve magicalJust So Storiestell, among other things, how the camel got his hump, the leopard his spots, the elephant his trunk, how the alphabet was made and how a butterfly caused mayhem at the court of King Solomon when he stamped. Kipling's own illustrations that makeJust So Storiesone of the few enduring classics of children's literature that G. K. Chesterton called 'Fairy tales told to men in the morning of the world.'
This new impression includes Kipling's well-lovedThe Jungle Book,a quite different set of stories that introduce the orphan Mowgli who runs with a wolf pack, and tells of his friends and adversaries such as Shere Khan the tiger, the python Kaa, Baloo the sleepy brown bear and Bagheera, the black panther. A separate story describes the deadly duel between the mongoose, Rikki-tikki-tavi and Nag the cobra.
