Suggestions needed for a nicely illustrated copy of Just So Stories (Kipling).....

Recommended Posts

We got a version illustrated by Isabelle Brent - the illus remind me of illuminated manuscripts, lots of gold. It is still out of print, I believe -- I got mine from Abebooks.


For more kid like illus, I think you might want to go with books that have just a few of the stories, or just one story. For example, The Elephant's Child is available in lots of editions.

We just went through this here. We opted for the Isabelle Brent version, but this one is enjoyably illustrated too, and seems to have more illustrations per story. I took a bunch out of the library to evaluate which I liked best, and I thought these two were the best.
