One Story Stort...

This Audible book was included in the Kindle version at the time of purchase, and the one thing that I was disappointed about was that it is missing the last story - 'Vijaya' - which also happens to be one of my favourites. When Waterstones were offering audiobook downloads some years ago I happened to have downloaded the same book, and that was perfectly intact...

Apart from that one complaint, the stories are written and read by the author, which recapturesthe timeless feel as Rudyard Kipling's own stories. What is even more interesting are the "interviews" from both the author and illustrator included at the end, both of whom go into more detail about themselves, their inspirations and their experiences on working together for the printed book. Fascinating listening!
