    Kipling’s Just So Stories are among the most enduring classic children’s tales. They follow the traditional genre of stories which explain how unusual natural phenoma came about, often using fantastic and highly magical explanations. Kipling himself was born and spent his very early life in India, and some of the inspiration for these stories comes from traditional tales he heard from his ayah and the family’s other servants.

    The Just So Stories began as bedtime stories told to "Effie" (Josephine, Kipling's firstborn). When the first three were published in a children's magazine, a year before her death, Kipling explained: "....in the evening, there were stories meant to put Effie to sleep, and you were not allowed to alter those by one single little word. They had to be told just so; or Effie would wake up and put back the missing sentence." (Wikipedia)

    These stories were meant to be told aloud, and the narrator David Lazarus is perfectly suited to tell these 12 tales Kipling originally told to his children over a century ago. The stories are not only entertaining, but many include a moral lesson, such as "How the Camel Got His Hump," a lesson about being lazy and procrastinating. If you have a cat, you will see him in "The Cat That Walked by Himself".
