In 1902, Rudyard Kipling released Just So Stories, a compilation of children's animal stories linked by poems....
Just So Stories is a collection of Rudyard Kipling's animal stories, in which we learn about "How the Whale Got His Throat," "How the Camel Got His Hump," "How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin," "How the Leopard Got His Spots," "The Elephant's Child," "The Sing-Song of Old Man Kangaroo," "The Beginning of the Armadilloes," and "...And Then There Were None."
These stories were originally published between 1894 and 1896 in The Jungle Book magazine. They are now also collected together with other tales by Kipling in book form. The original text has been updated by Mary Jo Hatch for this edition.
Why do people keep reading Charles Dickens' novels even though they're all based on real events? This question is especially relevant to writers who want to write fiction that is based on actual people or events. Some famous authors include Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice), Henry James (The Turn of the Screw), and Gabriel García Márquez (One Hundred Years of Solitude).
Dickens created a world of his own where everything was exaggerated: the poverty, the violence, the cruelty. But at the same time, he showed what was good about life in England back then. He managed to make his readers feel happy while being upset by some of the events that happened in the books. That is why people continue to read his works more than one hundred years after his death.
Kipling, Rudyard Iliustratorium/Just So Stories Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) was a prominent writer in the United Kingdom in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. His works of fiction include The Jungle Book, a children's literature classic, and the thrilling adventure novel Kim, as well as collections of poetry, short stories, and essays.
He was born in India, the son of an army officer, and grew up in England, where he attended school in St Andrews before going to university in Cambridge. He spent his time between London and Cambridgeshire writing poems and articles for newspapers, including two novels that were published under the name R. K. Robinhood.
Kipling became interested in wildlife during travels around the world with his father, who was posted to various locations including India and Afghanistan. He used his experiences there to write several books for children, one of which is considered by many to be the first Just So Story: "The Elephant's Child".
After marrying into wealth, Kipling moved with his wife and three children to Sussex, where he began writing poems and articles for magazines such as Punch. One of these articles, "Niggerati! Niggerati!" caused controversy at the time because of its use of the word "nigger", but it also made him famous among readers of adventure stories.

A Collection of Fables
A "fable" is essentially a short narrative with animal characters that frequently contains a moral. The poem's premise encompasses not judging people, but rather attempting to judge them based on their inherent power. Everyone is entitled to more or less. This also means that some are simply better at hiding what they are really like behind a polite demeanor while others cannot manage this and are therefore condemned to suffer accordingly.
The fable's main character is the fox. He is a cunning beast who tries his best to fit in with society by wearing clothes and doing things "humanly". However, this only goes so far because eventually he will be caught out for what he truly is. Like everyone else, the fox has secret desires that he attempts to hide from others. These include desire for fame, luxury items such as jewelry and clothing, and most importantly, food. The only way the fox can get these things is by deceiving others so that they will give them to him. He does this by pretending to be something he is not (such as a dog or a sheep), or by telling lies about himself or his abilities.
In conclusion, the fable teaches us that it is best to be honest and true to yourself at all times, even if this means suffering through some sort of punishment. It is also important to remember that everyone is different and no two people will react to the same thing in the same way.
A fable is a narrative that imparts a lesson via the use of animals as characters. This is a poem about a rambunctious juvenile cricket and an ant. Cricket used to sing all day and had a nice time throughout the summer season. Ants are diligent animals who put money up for the future. One day, the ants found a way how they could save some money and have a little fun at the same time. They hired a lawyer to protect their interests.
Cricket's mother told him, "Stop singing before midnight tonight or you'll go blind." Late at night, when it was just the ants going about their business, Cricket went on singing. The next morning, his mother took him to a doctor, who told them that singing at such a young age would likely cause Cricket to lose his voice. Poor Cricket! The ant workers decided to hire a lawyer to sue the earth.
'The lawyer said, "You know, you ants have good sense. You should be able to survive for several years without singing. Let's make a deal: I'll help you out if you help me out. I'm not very good at singing but maybe I can play some music for you ants so you don't feel like you're losing your minds during dinner time." Cricket's mother agreed to the deal. After hiring more lawyers, the ants won their case.
'The next day, the cricket went back to singing at midnight.
