More About Rudyard Kipling & Geoffrey Palmer


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay, India to British parents on December 30, 1865. In 1871, Rudyard and his sister, Trix, aged three, were left to be cared for by a couple in Southsea, England. Five years passed before he saw his parents again. His sense of desertion and despair were later expressed in his story -Baa Baa, Black Sheep- (1888), in his novel The Light that failed (1890), and his autobiography, Something of Myself (1937). As late as 1935 Kipling still spoke bitterly of the -House of Desolation- at Southsea: -I should like to burn it down and plough the place with salt.-At twelve he entered a minor public school, the United Services College at Westward Ho, North Devon. In Stalky and CO. (1899) the myopic Beetle is a self-caricature, and the days at Westward Ho are recalled with mixed feelings. At sixteen, eccentric and literary, Kipling sailed to India to become a journalist. His Indian experiences led to seven volumes of stories, including Soldiers Three (1888) and Wee Willie Winkie (1888).At twenty-four he returned to England and quickly tuned into a literary celebrity. In London he became close friends with an American, (Charles) Wolcott Balestier, with whom he collaborated on what critics called a -dime store novel.- Wolcott died suddenly in 1891, and a few weeks later Kipling married Wolcott's sister, Caroline. The newlyweds settled in Brattleboro, Vermont, where Kipling wrote The Jungle Book (1895), and most of Captains Courageous (1897). By this time Kipling's popularity and financial success were enormous.In 1899 the Kipling's settled in Sussex, England, where he wrote some of his best books: Kim (1901), Just So Stories (1902), and Puck of Pooks Hill (1906). In 1907 he received the Nobel Prize for literature. By the time he died, on January 18 1936, critical opinion was deeply divided about his writings, but his books continued to be read by thousands, and such unforgettable poems and stories as -Gunga Din, - -If, - -The Man Who Would Be King, - and -Rikki-Tikki-Tavi- have lived on in the consciousness of succeeding generations.Peter Washington is the editor of several Everyman's Library Pocket Poet anthologies, including Love Poems, Friendship Poems, and Poems of Mourning.

Rudyard Kipling lived in Bombay Bombay. Rudyard Kipling was born in 1865 and died in 1936.

Reviews - What do customers think about Just So Stories (Classic Literature With Classical Music. Children's Favorites)?

Things Every Child Should Know  Mar 7, 2008
As a child I read these wonderful stories, read them to my child and now he's reading them to his children. How can you get through life not knowing how the Elephant Got His Trunk or how the Camel Got His Hump. In these days of uncertainty, these questions beg to be answered. Even now, and I'm 60, I can quote passages from this book to unenlightened friends and have gotten some of them to read this to themselves and grand children. For so many years, Kipling was out of favor, it's nice that a new generation of children are reading these wonderful stories.
 
The quality lives up to the title  Feb 13, 2008
The production of this fine collection of stories is "Just-So." I expected more from an MP3 recording. The stories themselves are fine... but the hissing? Try a different version perhaps.
 
Just So Racist!!  Dec 20, 2007
"Oh, plain black's best for a nigger" from "How the Lepard got his Spots"....need I say more??
I was very disappointed with this book after so many of the reviews were positive. Let's wake up!! It's 2007 and the Era of the word "Negro", or as Mr. Kipling likes to say..."nigger" is not a charming word to describe an African/black person! Why don't we keep these types of books in a special section on racist authors, and what not to spend time reading to our children!!
 
Just So Stories a Wonderful book for all  Dec 14, 2007
My daughter and I read this book a year ago for homeschool and enjoyed it immensly. We have moved out of country, and were not able to bring a lot things with us, this book included. However, she received this book for Christmas and couldn't have been more thrilled. It is a book that can be read again, and again. They are wonderful stories full of clever writing, great plots, and perfect for kids of all ages.
 
Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories  Dec 7, 2007
Timeless tales of a few animal origins. Prescious, priceless! And, absolutely Fantastic when read aloud to others with different voices for the different animals, as they were to me when I was a child. I bought several copies for my children so they could pass them on to thier children as well.
