Just So Stories. By: Rudyard Kipling. Puffin Audiobooks ISBN 0-14-086555-1 1998 (2.5 hrs)

Hear, O best beloved, the most miraculous tales of animals wild and tame, from the jaguar and the kangaroo to the butterfly and the solitary cat. In these classic stories Rudyard Kipling tells us of the origins of many of the beasts of the sea, of the jungle, of the desert and even of exquisite palaces of the East. We are told how the elephant child got its trunk, how the leopard got its spot and how the humble butterfly caused on uproar by stamping foot. Originally written for children, these stories are so rich in humour, inventiveness and imagination that they have a timeless appeal to all ages.
