How the Leopard Got His Spots and Other Silly Stories
Rudyard Kipling was truly an innovative children's author. In "How the Leopard Got His Spots," Kipling introduces readers to animal adaptation and camouflage through the tale of a confused leopard trying to hunt for his dinner--only to find it hidden to him. Inventive and amusing language use will give readers the giggles, especially those reading out loud! "The Four Little Children Who Went Round the World," "The Accomplished Lucky Teakettle," and "Bruin and Reynard" add to the magical amusement. With full-color illustrations complementing each story, this volume adds a bit of whimsy into any reader's library.
