Just So Stories from Alderney bring back delightful childhood memories.
Rudyard Kipling was born in India and much of his work reflects the privileged and faintly bizarre life led by his family and their fellow expatriates. The Just So Stories are delightful little entertainments for youngsters, written for Kipling's eldest daughter, Josephine, and originally accompanied by illustrations by the author himself. In each case once the story has been told there is a short poem at the end putting much of the same information into rhyming verse.
