Publisher's Summary

Kipling's own drawings, with their long, funny captions, illustrate his hilarious explanations of "How the Camel Got His Hump", "How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin", "How the Armadillo Happened", and other animal How's. He began inventing these stories in his American wife's hometown of Brattleboro, Vermont, to amuse his eldest daughter - and they have served ever since as a source of laughter for children everywhere.

Timeless stories masterfully narrated

We purchased this as it was recommended on our first grade reading list. What a treasure! Kipling regales everyone with "origin" stories such as "How the Whale got his Throat" and "How the Camel got his Hump." It seems anything narrated by Jim Weiss turns to gold. This is a perfect narration for the car. Lots of short stories that can be completed in a short trip. This has been one of our best purchases as the children love to listen to them over and over again.
