Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was a versatile writer. He had success with novels such as Kim, many collections of poetry, and essays and articles for newspapers, especially in India.
Today, eighty years after his death, Kipling is perhaps most appreciated as a writer of stories for children. The Jungle Book has been filmed many times. Stalky and Co., a story of school life, is still esteemed. But for many people, the crowning achievement is The Just So Stories.
A delight for children. And for grown-ups too!
