    W. H. Hudson was born in 1841 in Buenos Aires and seems to have been a sort of permanently displaced person. He moved to London in 1869 and wrote a series of remarkable books, most with a wilderness setting. In 1904, when he was 63, he focused on an Indian legend for Green Mansions, a memorable romance of the jungle for which he is now chiefly remembered. His epitaph reads, "He Loved Birds and Green Places and the Wind on the Heath, and Saw Brightness of the Skirts of God."

    This is a selection from Kipling's Just So Stories for Little Children. The "just so" stories are highly fantasized origin stories that are among Kipling's best known and, arguably, best works.

    Couldn't believe price on this one. Our school library has been paying
    over twelve dollars for story CD's. This one is very cheap and very good.

    Kipling was a British author and poet, born in India. He is best known for the many children's tales, his Indian spy novel Kim (1901), a number of poems, and many short stories. This gentle supernatural story is one of his best.
