Never has there been a more satisfying rendering of Kipling’s most beloved Just So story.

The Elephant's Child book. Because of his 'satiable curtiosity about what the crocodile. Tim Raglin’s illustrations are brilliant and colorful, especially of the forest where the Elephant’s Child lives in as the trees are green and pink. The illustrations that stood out the most was the illustration of the Elephant’s Child having no trunk as his nose looks like a little stub on his face. Parents should know that there is quite a bit of violence on this video, mainly of the Elephant’s Child being spanked throughout the video.

But just as he was going to eat it there came down to the beach from the Altogether Uninhabited Interior one Rhinoceros with a horn on his nose, two piggy eyes, and few manners. In those days the Rhinoceros's skin fitted him quite tight. There were no wrinkles in it anywhere.

Just So Stories for Little Children is a 1902 collection of origin stories by the British author Rudyard Kipling. Considered a classic of children's literature, the book is among Kipling's best known works. Kipling began working on the book by telling the first three chapters as bedtime stories to his daughter Josephine. These had to be told "just so" (exactly in the words she was used to) or she would complain.

So the Elephant’s Child went home across Africa frisking and whisking his trunk. This is just a picture of the Elephant’s Child going to pull bananas off a banana-tree after he had got his fine new long trunk. I don’t think it is a very nice picture; but I couldn’t make it any better, because elephants and bananas are hard to draw. The streaky things behind the Elephant’s Child mean squoggy marshy country somewhere in Africa.

Just So Stories was the first book that Michael Morpurgo loved as a child.

Just So Stories was the first book that Michael Morpurgo loved as a child. As a writer for children himself, he marvels at the inventiveness and ingenuity of the stories. My copy of Just So Stories, in its brick-red cover with the Elephant's Child straining away with all his might to escape the jaws of the Crocodile on the banks of "the great grey-green, greasy Limpopo River", the ock-Snake in close attendance, was the first book I truly loved. My mother was an actress, who had performed in rep all over the country, including a season or two at Stratford. But by the time I was born, my mother had stopped acting to become a full-time mother.

The illustrations are excellent but I was disappointed by some word changes from the original and the interactive eBook features are not useful/poorly implemented. The original Kipling text is out of copyright so it is readily available elsewhere for free. In this book they changed "'satiable" elephant's child to "insatiable" throughout (ie. they expanded the informal contraction wherein the "in" at the beginning was replaced by an apostrophe) ...although technically correct, I think the story reads better as originally written. The "interactive feature" allows you to touch a paragraph of text and it is then shown in a larger font in a box over the illustration so it is easier to read than the TINY text in the book. This feature worked so poorly that I do not use it.

I love this story and was looking forward to sharing it with grandchildren. Unable to read it easily since the print is so very small the layout is two pages per screen. Usually, am able to zoom in on sections of pages or change font size. This was such a sad disappointment since I love the story so much. It was just a poorly executed Kindle book.

I love this story and wanted to have it on my Kindle to read to my grandkids. The drawings are wonderful, but the font is too small and I can't find a way to make it bigger. Too hard to read!

Interesting story, but didn't care for the violence (Lots of spanking) in the book.

My grandson is three and the problem was the amount of word on the page. He lost interest. I always loved the Kipling story and thought the art work was really wonderful. Maybe when he is older he will enjoy the book, but for now I will put it up.

It took awhile, but when I finally got him to read this with me he really enjoyed it. He is 9.

I saw this book over two years ago. And looked for ONLY this version for two years. No other version comes close to portraying the story with such great illustrations. Tim Raglin does a fantastic job of giving the characters a personality. I need 4 more for my grand kids and one more for ME!

It's a classic and I loved all of his books. As a pre-school teacher I would often read his classic and love them all.
