    How The Kipling Got His ReputationOnce upon a time Best Beloved when the world was middle aged and good ueen Victoria sat on the throne there was a Kipling And even though he constantly had to carry around a White Man's Burden an object by the way which he had invented himself and very proud he was of it too he was as happy as the day is long And he would often stop for a moment and sing a little song he'd written which beganMamma Pajama rolled out of bed and ran to the po lice stationand endedSeein' me and Sambo down by the Rudyard Maybe you know a song that's a bit like that Best Beloved and you're wondering why this one is different? But we'll get to that shortlyThe rest of this review is available elsewhere the location cannot be given for Goodreads policy reasons

    What an infuriating book I don't know what infuriates me that Kipling was a racist imperialist colonizer who believed firmly in white superiority and conveyed that in every word of these stories; or that Kipling is such a marvelous writer of the English languageKipling the colonizer imperialist racist supremicist had no trouble at all mugging the oral traditions of the peoples his people colonized to tell his Just So Stories to his Best Beloved No trouble at all mimicking their voices with disgusting condescension rewriting origin tales creating new origin tales playfully interweaving the inevitability of England's rise as though fated as he does so deftly in How the First Letter Was Written How the Alphabet Was Made by making his generative tale appear to be something it isn't Kipling's Just So Stories are propaganda at its most magical They're friendly propaganda They're propaganda of subtlety And Kipling was a master And it works so well because Kipling was so talented Love him or hate him I think it would be difficult to make a case that he was an untalented writer What Kipling could do and did do repeatedly with the English language was astounding He was a master And his gifts were such that even today countless people I know personally who consider themselves enlightened folk make excuses for Kipling The most common excuse I hear is He's a product of his time But in Kipling's lifetime were men like Richard Francis Burton Mark Twain Roger Casement George Orwell and countless others who didn't see the world or the white man's place in the world the way Kipling did Many were anti Colonial anti Imperial and not racist at all Many of Kipling's contemporaries saw colonized peoples as victims human beings deserving of dignity not sullen peoples to be brought toward the light So this main excuse really doesn't hold up though it's easy to voice because Kipling's stuff is so well written and likeable in its nastinessI read this to my youngest daughter my two year old and she seemed to be dazzled by the sound Kipling's words made coming out of my mouth I am hoping she's too young for any of his meaning to take seed in that fertile ground Because the seeds of Kipling bear only ugly fruitOne last scary thought what would the world be like if someone like Hitler had had the literary talent of Kipling It makes me shudder

    Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories originally published in 1902 are perennial favourites and can be read by adults and children alike They are known as pouruoi stories; in this case fantasies about the origin of individual wild animals who live in different countries The seed of the idea lies in the story How Fear Came within Rudyard Kipling's Second Jungle Book of 1895 when Mowgli hears the story of how the tiger got his stripes It is possible this gave the author the idea for a whole collection The stories are told uite collouially in a chatty entertaining style Now this is the next tale and it tells how the Camel got his big hump is a typical beginning Apart from some stylistic whimsical uirks such as the narrator freuently calling the reader O my Best beloved or commands such as Be uiet O you person without any form from the characters they feel surprisingly modern and inventive The recurring theme is of a particular animal being modified from its original form by the acts of Man who is represented as just another creature or by some magical being For example in The Beginning of the Armadillos Stickly Prickly Hedgehog and Slow Solid Tortoise cunningly gradually take on aspects of the other's behaviour in order to outwit Painted Jaguar As the tortoise becomes able to curl himself into a ball and the hedgehog teaches himself how to swim they begin to resemble their original forms less and less In the end they are virtually indistinguishable and the mother jaguar recommends to Painted Jaguar that he call them Armadillo until he finds out their proper name The narrator comments So that's all right Best Beloved Do you see? In How the Camel got his Hump the grumpy lazy Camel emits a Humph whenever he is asked to work A djinn punishes the camel's refusal to work for three days by saying that he must work longer between times of eating and must live on his Humph We call it a hump now not to hurt his feelings comments the narratorFor the purposes of the story then the animals are heavily anthropomorphised They do however retain features of the present day animal's behaviour and some vocabulary from the countries where the animals live is often includedThis collection assembled in 1987 includes the most popular stories How the Whale got his ThroatHow the Rhinoceros got his SkinHow the Camel got his HumpHow the Leopard got his SpotsThe Elephants' ChildThe Beginning of the ArmadillosThe Sing Song of Old Man KangarooThe Cat That Walked by HimselfThe Butterfly That StampedIt is a large format book and interspersed in the text are pen and sepia ink drawings There are also some whole page water colour illustrations all by Meg Rutherford For the original book of 13 stories in 1902 Rudyard Kipling provided his own illustrations from wood cutsThe stories seem timeless and this fact plus their imaginative and fantastical content goes a good way to explaining their continued popularity They can be read aloud over and over again and never seem to lose their whimsical charm

    The Just So StoriesI was introduced to these stories at a age so early that I cannot remember whenLater I would re read these stories along with the Jungle Book stories which made Kipling famousHow the Elephant got his truck is his best I laughed when the Elephant's Child asked his relatives what the crocodile has for dinner and got spanked by themHowever I was worried when he actually met the crocodile who bit his nose and began pulling him into the riverThe Just So Stories are good to read as a child to read again as an adult and then to retell to grandchildrenSecond ReadingThis time I listened to the audio book version produced by Librevox and distributed for free from Loyal Books formerly known as Books Should Be FreeFaithfully read with expressionTo get this book now go to


  5. Michael Finocchiaro Michael Finocchiaro says:

    All these tales are like Aesop's fables about how various animals got their characteristic features They are beautiful short tales most likely derived from folk legends that Kipling heard during his time in Africa and India but still full of humour and subtle wisdom Unlike Kim his pro empire attitude does not really pollute the innocent atmosphere of these wonderful stories


  6. Dannii Elle Dannii Elle says:

    This was an adorably sweet collection of stories aimed at younger readers and all centring around the themes of animals Whilst not scientifically correct in the least this offered the reader a series of fun anecdotes about how various different animals got their defining features such as a leopard and his spots and an elephant with his trunkMy main source of enjoyment with this book came from its amusing usage of language Alliterative terms onomatopoeic phrases odd pairings of words and colourful imagery dotted each paragraph making this both a highly visual read and one that would really shine when read aloudWhilst I did find this a fun and entertaining little read I did also find that the nature of each story began to feel a little predictable as the anthology wore on Whilst I understand its appeal is largely for a younger audience I became a little disenchanted with its whimsy when I found it to retain only this one tone Still fun and still worth a read but perhaps to be best enjoyed when the reading of each story is spaced out


  7. Ken Ken says:

    I've got a vague memory reading these short stories as a kid a uick Google search also revealed an early 90's BBC animated series which looked familiar and probably the reason for owning thr bookOut of the 12 stories in the collection my favourites were the ones that I had the strongest recollectionsLike how the workshy Camel got his hump and a baby Elephant developt a trunkThese stories are so uirky and memorableCoincidentally the strongest stories are in the first half of the collection as the others introduce humans into the tales and explains how both drawings and the alphabet was createdIt's always fun to have that 'oh I remember this one now' moment whilst also being perfect length to read as bedtime storiesIt was fun revisiting them


  8. Nick Nick says:

    These stories were funny imaginative and well written I have read several reviews that talk about Kipling being Imperialistic condescending and a host of other distasteful names But here's the dealhe wrote these tales in different times and they were written for his children I think such judgments might be slightly anachronistic; however I do think Kipling says some things that are grating to our modern ears and sentiments I wasn't getting the whole white man's burden vibe that some people were though


  9. Nandakishore Varma Nandakishore Varma says:

    OK he's a racist blackguard but Kipling does write beautifully This was his first book I read in the original and I loved every bit of it the stories and the pictures Since I was too young to understand the latent racism and there's so much of it in here apparently when I read it and I have not reread it since I will rate it based on my original reading experience five golden stars


  10. Tom Tom says:

    The book that made me fall in love with storytelling I still have my mother's hardbound edition with marvelous color plates published in the 20s Kipling may have been a romantic apologist for the British Empire but the man knew how to weave a spell in children's stories and he can be uite playful and inventive with language Just read the first line of any number of stories and you'll immediately understand his timeless appeal My favorites are from The Cat that Walked by Himself Here and attend and listen; for this befell and became and behappened and was O my best beloved when the tame animals were wild The rhythm is absolutely hypnotic My other favorite is from The Elephant's Trunk In the high and far off times O my best beloved the elephant had no trunkThese stories are just as delightful for adults as they are for children I'm 53 and never tire of rereading them
