Sinopsis

The Just So Stories for Little Children are among Kiplings best known and loved works. This recording aims to be the first complete audio book of this title with nothing left out. The Nobel prize-winning authors enjoyment in playing with the sounds and meanings of words is very evident throughout, and adds to adults enjoyment of these stories for children. This playfulness is also dramatically present in the plotting. For both reasons these stories been loved by generations of children and adults alike. Because the writing plays with sound and meaning the Just So Stories are best enjoyed when read aloud. As we all are, Kipling was a child of his time and social setting, so for example in How the Leopard Got his Spots he uses what one recent reviewer called the N word to refer to the Ethiopian. Each listener will need to examine critically both Kiplings attitudes and their own. This recording of the Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling includes Kiplings descriptions of the pictures he drew for the book. These pictures can be found in a PDF file to accompany each chapter. As well as the twelve stories most often published under this title (from the first British edition) it also includes The Tabu Tale a thirteenth story (included in the first US edition). The last story Kipling wrote Ham and the Porcupine is also a just so story, but has not usually been collected with the others, and perhaps lacks their verve and wordplay. The Kipling Society publishes an excellent freely available online edition with a good set of notes on the text. The stories are fanciful, and not intended to offer historical, scientific or religious accounts of the way things became. They are simply and exquisitely stories to enjoy. So please enjoy them in this reading. (Introduction by Tim Bulkeley)
