    " This is a positively charming little book! The stories are told in such a childlike fashion yet use such a wide, cultured vocabulary and perfectly illustrate some of the deep truths of life in general. A must-read for all ages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jericho "Jack" Aleksandr | 3/30/2011

    " Whimsical, delightful. "The Cat Who Walked By Himself" remains a lifelong favorite. "

    " I was glad to have finally read these. We read them to Anna. She enjoyed them, but the language was hard to understand at times and sometimes difficult to read aloud. I read that to hear Kipling tell them was much better than to read them. I imagine he was a great storyteller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 3/15/2011

    " My absolute favourite childhood stories which I still love to this day. I can recite the beginning of the armadillos by heart! "

    " I loved this book, I can't believe that I missed this one as a child. It is probably one of my favorite children's books of all time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abbey | 3/8/2011

    " In third grade, my teacher read us 'The Elephant's Child' one day after recess. That night at dinner, I recited the entire thing to my parents. And so began my love for the Just So Stories (and the discovery of my freakishly good memory). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 2/24/2011

    " Very lovely fables with a refreshingly different(to the U.S. reader) vocabulary. Some were a lot of fun. Some were a little dull, but overall, a quaint, enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasha | 2/8/2011

    " We read these as bed time stories and my kids were very good about getting into their beds and laying down so that I could read them a couple of stories. They are pretty short, so we would usually read 2-3 a night. We finished the book in about 5 days stretching it out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 1/29/2011

    " this is a fabulous book and I highly recommend it to everyone...this is one to keep on the bookshelf and to put in the purse when your traveling with kids....I simplify the language a little so my children listen to it... "
