Summary (From the publisher):

In subject and setting the stories of this book range from animals to the origins of the alphabet and from prehistoric caves to the jungle forests of Africa. Illustrated with playful, riddling drawings and scattered through with rhymes and poems, this is a richly inventive collection, every tale a miniature masterpiece touched with Kipling's authentic magic.
