Publisher's Summary

A classic fable from Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories, read by Johnny Morris.

Have you ever wondered how and why the animals came to be as they are? In these magical tales, drawn from stories he heard as a child in India as well as on folk traditions he later collected all over the world, Rudyard Kipling gives some wonderfully imaginative explanations.

Originally told by Rudyard Kipling for his own children, these witty, fanciful tales have been loved by generations of children ever since.

Just So You Know

This is only a single story, but it's a classic and is very well narrated. Like "The Little Red Hen", the moral of the story imparts the value of working cooperatively with others by reflecting on the consequences of not doing so. If I were interested in making a purchase, I would look for a copy of the entire book, but this story is currently included in the Audible Plus Catalog and I imagine it will probably stay there.

Takes me back to the 60s

Downloaded for grandkids but listened to it just to hear Johnny Morris doing animal voices. Brilliant.
