It’s my loss (until now), because they are certainly worth their good reputation.
There are plenty of stories about the unusual features of animals, including:
- How the camel got its’ hump.
- How the rhinoceros got his peculiar skin.
- Why leopards have spots.
- How the elephant got his trunk.
…. And plenty more.
They are tall tales told with rhyming prose which will interest children and adults alike.
None of that is evident in these classic stories which are keenly observed and beautifully written. Most people will have heard of the cat that walked alone, but maybe fewer people will know of the butterfly that stamped or how the elephant got his trunk or the leopard his spots.
If you've never read these, you owe it to yourself, or your children, to try.
