A book that originated as a series of bedtime stories told by Kipling to his daughter, Just So Stories contains chapters explaining the processes through which various animals came to look as they do, including "How the Whale Got His Throat," and "How the Camel Got His Hump." This classic children's book takes its name from the fact that Kipling had to tell the stories "just so," or else run the risk of upsetting his daughter.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.
