Summary
How did the Rhinoceros get his wrinkly skin? Why won't cats come when they're called? How did one curious elephant - with a nose for trouble - change the lives of all elephants everywhere? First told aloud to his young daughter, Rudyard Kipling's inspired answers to these and other questions drew upon fables he had heard as a child in India and folktales he gathered from around the world. Now, in this sumptuous volume, Kipling's playful pourquoi tales are brought to life by eight of today's most celebrated illustrators - from Peter Sis's elegantly graphic interpretation of "How the Whale Got His Throat" to Satoshi Kitamura's amusingly expressive characters in "The Cat That Walked by Himself." These eight classic tales, along with their latest artistic interpretations, are guaranteed to delight and appeal to a new generation of "'satiably curious" children
