Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling

Just So Stories
Rudyard Kipling
Random House UK Ltd.

Stories of the whys you never thought about. =) This book contains 12 short stories. Quite a good book to read aloud to children. I like the short story titled The Cat That Walked by Himself. It is a story of "why" dog guards house and follow its master to go hunting, "why" cats stay indoor and catch mice, "why" horses provide transportation and "why" cows are to give warm white milk. =)

After reading the stories, you'd know that "elephants used to not have trunks" and "how they have trunks like they do today". =p

List of short stories in the book;
How The Whale got His Throat
How The Camel Got His Hump
How The Rhinoceros Got His Skin
How the Leopard Got His Spots
The Elephant's Child
The Sing-Song of Old Man Kangaroo
The Beginning of The Armadillos
How The First Letter Was Written
How The Alphabet Was Made
The Crab That Played With The Sea
The Cat That Walked by Himself
The Butterfly That Stamped

Strictly fiction peeps. Don't get too into the stories. Hihi

Note : No picture taken for this book as it was read in a bookstore. =p
