4.0 out of 5 stars Just a bit short of perfection, 16 Mar 2009
This review is from: A Collection of Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories (Paperback)
I've recently bought this for my young Aussie nephew, because my own children (now in their 20s) loved the stories so much. I'm relieved to hear that he is finding them huge fun - and so is his dad, who didn't know them as a child. The glorious language, the rhythm and Kipling's humour still stand the ultimate test of a 6-year-old audience, over 100 years after the stories were first published. The pictures in this new edition are beautiful and wonderfully colourful, but I can't help regretting the loss of Kipling's own illustrations a bit, my only reason for not giving the book 5 stars.
