Joseph Rudyard Kipling was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He enjoyed profound popularity with the English-speaking public through the 1890s and a cultural stature that may have been unequalled, then or since. By 1892 he had created a remarkably wide-ranging literary landscape of British India.

And the Leopard scratched his head and said, "It ought to be 'sclusively a delicate greyish-fawn, and it ought to. .Sometimes the fingers slipped and the marks got a little blurred; but if you look closely at any Leopard now you will see that there are always five spots off five fat black finger-tips.

And the Leopard scratched his head and said, "It ought to be 'sclusively a delicate greyish-fawn, and it ought to be Zebra; but it is covered all over with black and purple stripes. Now you are a beauty!" said the Ethiopian. You can lie out on the bare ground and look like a heap of pebbles.

The Just So Stories by Kipling (who also wrote the Jungle Book) tell us so many interesting things - and in this story we learn how the Leopard got his spots - and why a Leopard can never change his spots. We have slightly adapted the story at the end to fit in with modern mores). How the leopard got his spots.

The Leopard is happy to be sandy-yellow and greyish-brown all over. These books give further proof that Kipling excelled at telling a story but was inconsistent in producing balanced, cohesive novels. In 1902 Kipling bought a house at Burwash, Sussex, which remained his home until his death. A substantial biography, Charles Carrington, Rudyard Kipling: His Life and Work, rev. ed. (1978), is judicious and sympathetic and benefits from a thorough knowledge of Kipling's background in three continents.

Relates how the ownish leopard came by his spots. His best-known children's books are Just So Stories (1902), The Jungle Books (1894-95), and Kim (1901). His short stories, although their understanding of the Indian is often moving, became minor hymns to the glory of Queen Victoria's empire and the civil servants and soldiers who staffed her outposts. Kim, an Irish boy in India who becomes the companion of a Tibetan lama, at length joins the British Secret Service, without, says Wilson, any sense of the betrayal of his friend this actually meant.

Feb 01, 2010 Ronyell rated it it was amazing. This book takes one story from the Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling to give some beautiful although in this case unique illustrations while re-telling the story. Anyway the reading as with Kipling may be a bit tricky for very much younger crowds since of all the abbreviated words and it is done well to be able to read this book aloud.

A classic story for children. I bought this edition because I read the same one as a child and have always loved the artwork. My little one has quickly adopted it as a favorite book.

I love this book and thought that I had ordered this book. Well the book I got was the wrong book. I am very angry.

Was this a scam? Advertise a project, then do nothing when the customer receives nothing, but pays anyway? Shame on Kindle, or Amazon.

I remember going over to my grandma's house as a little girl and having my mom read me this book. I loved this book so much I had to get it for my own kids. The illustrations are so beautiful and colorful. Definitely keeps a child interested.

Keep this one on your bookshelf, O Best Beloved. It is the entire original story of "How the Leopard" in all its Rudyard Kipling language. It just melts in your mouth as you read it. The Ethiopian likes to use long words, because he is a Grown Up.

The illustrations are interesting and full of movement and dappled shade. This book is a keeper. Excellent, original illustrations by Lori Lohstoeter.
