'He asked his tall aunt, the Ostrich, why her rail features grew just so, and his tall aunt, the Ostrich, spanked him with her hard, hard claw.' The enchanting tales of the Just So Stories have been loved by generations of readers. With classic stories such as 'How the Camel got his Hump', 'How the Leopard got his Spots' and 'How the Alphabet was Made', this collector's edition also includes an introduction by Ruskin Bond and specially commissioned illustrations. About the Author Rudyard Kipling was a novelist, short-story writer and poet, born in Bombay in 1865. He completed his studies abroad before returning to India, where he wrote his celebrated work, Plain Tales from the Hills. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907, the youngest person to have ever received this award. He also received the Gold Medal of the Royal Society of Literature in 1926. Some of his works are now considered iconic, such as The Jungle Book and Kim. Kipling died in 1936.
