I am an elementary teacher. I LOVE this book and so do the children. Rudyard Kipling writes fictionalized, but fun accounts about how animals came to be the way they are. This story tells about how the woman long ago was able to tame all of the other wild animals (the dog, cow, horse), but the cat always intended to remain independent. She eventually tricked the cat into becoming "semi-tame." The pictures are beautiful, and the pages are card stock--a well-constructed book. It doesn't hurt that Rudyard Kipling writes great literature as well. I would recommend reading this book orally to 8-12 yr. olds. Great discussion will follow about how each animal came to have their unique personalities.
I bought this book of short stories for my granddaughters who received the Walkin' Kitties toys as a birthday gift. They loved the story about the cat who walked by himself, and said it was such a TRUE story! This book is a must-have to introduce young readers to Rudyard Kipling! It's a small enough book to put in your purse, to take along anyplace you must sit and wait, and can be easily read in a short time! (doctor's office, laundry mat, etc.)
greed style
As a non-native English speaker, I didn't grow up with this story. Now as an adult I find it lovely and peaceful, I understand how kids could enjoy the story when their parents read it. I recommend it for everyone (children and adults) and specially for people with English as a second language!
love it!
If you have read the original story by Rudyard Kipling you will probabaly be disappointed, as I was, in this very different version. What makes Kipling's version special is his beautiful use of words, the rhythm of his sentences, and the overall crafting of a fine story. All that is gone here. This is like the Reader's Digest version. Please read the original story and see if you agree.
Wonderful book by Kipling. You know Rudyard suggested we westerners stay out of the mountains of Afghanistan. the cat did.
This is one of the great children's stories ever written and it is beautifully performed on this recording.
Great book about cats and people. An unknown (to me) classic I saw at the British Library. I am getting copies for my discriminating cat friends.
