    " The excellent audiobook version I've been listening to features readers like Jack Nicholson and Danny Glover. Oh man are they good! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evelyn | 5/12/2013

    " I've never read these before, but I absolutely loved them! My kids are already asking to read this book again. These stories are lots of fun to read out loud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JQ | 12/8/2012

    " The writing is so descriptive and rhythmical that the first time through was difficult to follow. It didn't bug my son (age 5). The second time through we both enjoyed it. Twice was enough for me but my son picks these stories over traditional fairy tales. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Deanna | 4/27/2012

    " I've tried to like this book so many times, but I just can't get it done. The kids enjoy it more than I do. Sorry Mr. Kipling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nina | 3/12/2012

    " I read these when I was twelve, I think, and it's one of the first times I remember being "transported" by a book. Also, The Cat That Walks By Himself got a name drop in Downton Abbey. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 2/11/2012

    " I loved these stories as a child, so I read them to my son... and he loved them too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 4/17/2011

    " I read these to my children and we all enjoyed them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Magdalen | 4/10/2011

    " 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 M.J. | 4/9/2011

    " Starting to reread this one to my son as my dad read to me a few years back. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meor | 4/7/2011

    " One of my favorites childhood book (and memories). "

  • 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krisannekerr | 3/25/2011

    " 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! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janel | 3/12/2011

    " 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... "
