  • With the Night Mail

    With the Night Mail
    And "Easy As A.b.c."
    Rudyard Kipling's thrilling science fiction novella follows the exploits of an intercontinental mail dirigible battling foul weather. Meanwhile, a planet-wide Aerial Board of Control enforces a rigid system of command and control in the skies and in world affairs, too. In Kipling's 1912 follow-up story, "As Easy As A.B.C.," set 65 years after With the Night Mail, the Aerial Board has complete control over the social and economic affairs of every nation. When a mob of disgruntled "Serviles" in the District of Northern Illinois demands the return of democracy, the A.B.C. sends a team of troubleshooters and a fleet of 200 zeppelins to "take such steps as might be necessary for the resumption of traffic and all that that implies."

    If

    If
    When Rudyard Kipling wrote the poem "If—" in 1909, he was addressing his 12-yearold son, John, who would die in battle a few short years later during World War I. The famous author's words soon inspired a nation, and the poem has twice been voted Great Britain's favorite. Italian illustrator Giovanni Manna melds the innocence of childhood with the encouraging sentiments expressed by Kipling's words in this tender portrayal of fatherly advice.

    The Jungle Book

    The Jungle Book
    The Graphic Novel
    The adventure begins the night a boy, Mowgli, escapes certain doom after being trapped in the perilous clutches of the tiger Shere Khan. To protect Mowgli and to defy the tiger, the Seeonee wolf pack adopts the boy, giving him the nickname "Man-Cub". Other animals--a panther, bear, and python--teach the boy how to survive as Shere Khan continually pursues him through the jungle. Eventually, Mowgli and Shere Khan square off in an epic battle, from which only one will survive.

    Just So Stories

    Just So Stories
    An unforgettable cast of extraordinary animal characters is brought to life in stunning new illustrations by award-winning illustrator Robert Ingpen Once upon a time, O my Best Beloved . . . So begins this classic collection of gloriously fanciful tales of how things in the world came to be as they are. This collection includes the story of how the lazy camel found himself with a hump and how the insatiable curiosity of the elephant earned him his long trunk. It reveals how the whale was given a throat, and why every rhinoceros has great folds in his skin and a very bad temper. We also find out about the cunning cat that walked by itself, and how clever little Taffy and her Daddy Tegumai made the first alphabet. Rudyard Kipling first entertained his own children with these delightful, warm, and humorous stories, which he later wrote down for publication in 1902. Conjuring up distant lands and exotic jungles, they are bewitching for both children and adults. This sumptuous volume offers the complete and unabridged text, including the often-missing 13th story, "The Tabu Tal," which Kipling added for the American edition in 1903.
