Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936), poet, short-story writer and journalist, was born in India. In 1907 he became the first English writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Among his classic works are the poem If and The Jungle Book. He is buried in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey.
Well-known animal tales get a fresh look from eight contemporary artists in A Collection of Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories. Peter Sis, Satoshi Kitamura and Jane Ray number among the artists, illustrating "How the Whale Got His Throat," "How the Camel Got His Hump" and "How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin." The illustrators' individual styles lend each story a distinct feeling. Fans of Kipling's work will appreciate the new look and newcomers to the classic stories will be taken in by the bold artwork and approachable trim size. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
