How did the whale get his throat? Why was the lazy camel lumbered with a hump? And how did the elephant's insatiable curiosity earn him a trunk? Kipling first invented these delightful stories about the beginning of the world and the first animals in it for his own daughter, Josephine, who tragically died when she was six. Devastated by her loss, Kipling compiled the stories they had shared together into a treasury, which was first published in 1902. This new edition brings together the complete and unabridged text (including the thirteenth story, The Tabu Tale, which is often excluded from modern publications. Stunning new illustrations by award-winning artist Robert Ingpen bring an unforgettable cast of extraordinary animal characters to life.
