Editorial Reviews

Rudyard Kipling, the English Nobel laureate best known for The Jungle Book, offers a delightful and whimsical story about how felines and humankind became friends in The Cat That Walked by Himself.

Kipling’s children’s tale begins in a time when all creatures were wild. When "Man" and "Woman" invent fire in their cave, they soon begin to entice the dog, the horse, and the cow into sharing their lives with them. The wily and independent cat refuses at first to become domesticated. And when he does, it’s on his terms.

Cindy Hardin Killavey offers a lulling and wide-eyed performance of a story that will surely captivate children and animal lovers alike.

Publisher's Summary

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.

Great story but it's done by more than the one reader listed.
There is a whole cast of wonderful characters.
