What Our Customers Say...
Most renowned for 'The Jungle Book', 'Kim' and 'Just so Stories', Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) is seen as a pioneer for the short story form and a classic author of children's fiction. He was born in India, the inspiration behind a vast amount of his writings, which include 'The Jungle Book', 'Just So Stories' and 'Kim'. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907, becoming the youngest ever recipient and first English language writer to do so.
