Delightfully retold in humorous verse, with stunning illustrations throughout, this is a beautiful reworked edition of Rudyard Kipling's children's classic, Just So Stories.
A gorgeous gift for imaginative young readers, including an audio CD performed by Lenny Henry.


In this highly illustrated collection meet the cat who walked by himself, discover how the lazy camel got his hump, how the elephant got his long trunk, find out why the rhino has such wrinkly skin and how the whale got his teeny tiny throat. These well known, richly imagined stories tell of how the world came to be as it is. This is a smart, funny and younger approach to Kipling's work, and Just So Stories as you've never seen them before.

Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories are one of the enduring classics of children's literature and these witty, inventive stories have delighted generations of children. Combining the brilliant rhyming talent of Elli Woollard and beautiful illustrations from the award-winning Marta Altés, Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories is an enchanting retelling of a much-loved classic for a new generation. A book to truly treasure and one you will want to share.

Suitable for readers from 5-7 years.
