I am the cat who walks by himself and all places are alike to me. Here are the delightful stories which Kipling first told his own children before setting them down on paper. How the Camel got his Hump, How the Leopard got his spots, How the Elephant got his Trunk, The Butterfly that Stamped, and many others. They remain popular, entertaining every generation, partly because of the story and partly because of the vivid way they are written. To hear them – unabridged as they are here – is to enjoy them in their original form.
