Kim This engrossing and moving novel, with its diversity of memorable characters, offers many insights into political, religious and social tensions.
This is the enthralling story of a white boy growing up on the streets in India around the late 1880s. Having been orphaned at the age of 3 he has only vague memories of his white British culture and can easily pass as a Hindu or Muslim native to India. Out of curiousity he attaches himself to a wandering Tibetan lama and the two proceed together on their separate quests. Eventually his being a "sahib" catches up with him but although his birth race claims him he never fully loses his Hindu side and this is put to good use in the later chapters as the story unfolds. The story is rich in local colour and detail and clearly brings out the many cross-cultural delights and the tensions of India at that time. It is written with loving sympathy for that beautiful, amazing and to the Western mind, chaotic country and is remarkable for having been written so sensitively by a white man, much of whose own experience of growing up is evidently reflected here. A joy to read, a real insight into its time.
Rudyard Kipling This is the story of a boy and his weasel, a bird and a snake, India and the British Empire. Rudyard Kipling's dramatic tale, here excerpted from the greater volume of The Jungle Book, is the story of the loyal mongoose, Rikk-Tikki-Tavi, and the lengths to which he must go to protect his adoptive human family.
Rudyard Kipling The tales in the book (and also those in The Second Jungle Book which followed in 1895, and which includes five further stories about Mowgli) are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons.
Rudyard Kipling Through a series of trials and adventures, the youth learns to adjust to his rough new life and, with the help of his friend, the captain's son Dan Troop, he makes progress. Eventually, the schooner returns to port and Harvey wires his parents. They rush cross-country by their private rail car, given priority over commercial traffic, to Boston, Massachusetts. From there they go to the fishing town of Gloucester to find that their son has matured to become an industrious, serious and considerate young man.
Rudyard Kipling It is about two British adventurers in British India who become kings of Kafiristan, a remote part of Afghanistan. The story was inspired by the exploits of James Brooke, an Englishman who became the first White Rajah of Sarawak in Borneo; and by the travels of American adventurer Josiah Harlan, who was granted the title Prince of Ghor in perpetuity for himself and his descendants. It incorporates a number of other factual elements such as the European-like appearance of many Nuristani people, and an ending modelled on the return of the head of the explorer Adolf Schlagintweit to colonial administrators
Rudyard Kipling Have you ever enquired why the elephant has such an enormously elongated nose? Are you confused by a cat's contrary nature? Have you ruminated on the wrinkles of a rhinocerous? Or speculated on a leopard's spots? Rudyard Kipling wondered about all these things too, and in this marvellous collection of stories he imagines how the animals became 'just so Children's Classics is a twenty-first century classics list aimed at 8-12 year olds and the adults in their lives.

These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside:'They haven't got any grievance-nothing to hit with, don't you see, sir; and then there's not much to hit against, because the Government is more like a kind of general Providence, directing an old-established state of things, than that at home, where there's something new thrown down for us to fight about every three months. ' … As a good many men told him, HE undoubtedly had no soul, because he was so young, but it did not follow that his seniors were equally undeveloped; and, whether there was another world or not, a man still wanted to read his papers in this…. One day, after he had borrowed The Worm's trap for a lady who never existed, had used it himself all the afternoon, had sent a note to The Worm purporting to come from the lady, and was telling the Mess all about it.

Rudyard Kipling His name was Charlie Mears; he was the only son of his mother who was a widow, and he lived in the north of London, coming into the City every day to work in a bank. He was twenty years old and suffered from aspirations. I met him in a public billiard-saloon where the marker called him by his given name, and he called the marker "Bullseyes."
