    The Just So Stories generally have the theme of a particular animal being altered from an original form to its current form by the acts of human kind or some magical being. Whale has a tiny throat because he swallowed a mariner, who tied a raft inside to block the whale from swallowing other men. The Camel has a hump given to him by a djinn as punishment for the camel's refusing to work (the hump allows the camel to work longer between times of eating). And so on throughout the book. A fun collection of stories with something for everyone



    - How the Leopard Got His Spots

    Please be forewarned that this recording has the n word which was very upsetting to hear while listening with my 8 year old daughter. I would like this story to be removed from the playlist so that other children aren't exposed.

    - Short stories

    Very good for when you're trying to get to sleep and want to listen to something. The reader is very fast, which makes it hard to listen sometimes, but that seems to help, because trying to pay attention to something shuts shout brain down. Nice and interesting stories, I recommend this book to whoever is reading this right now, because abviousely you're either desperate for something to do, or bored enough to look at comments.
