They, a somber short story originally published in 1904 in Scribner’s Magazine, recalls a tragedy of Kipling’s own life—the sudden death of his daughter, Josephine.

When a lost motorist comes upon a beautiful manor, he encounters a blind woman who looks after a group of children. The man has lost a child of his own, and when he finds his way back to the manor some weeks later, he embarks on a journey to help a deathly ill young girl.

    " Three stars for the title story. Two stars for "Mary Postgate" but the third story "The Gardner" fell flat. "

    " Three short stories, some took longer to sink in and needed a reread. Makes you think about what you read, like that - just not all the time. "

    " This is a wonderful children's book & I was glad i took the time to read the story. The Disney movie does a pretty good job of retelling the story & of course "the Bare Neccessities" kept running through my mind. "

    " I think I was a bit too old for this. I liked the white seal story the best though.

    I also caught a bit of racism in it, not too bad; but still racism. "

    " Well-illustrated version of the old classics. These stories are public domain, so the reason to seek out a book version is only if the publisher has done something extra to make the book nice. They tried their best with this version, with lots of full-color and line drawings filling out the pages. "
