Paperback Castles

I live on a page in a book. My name is written in a curly and swirly font, along with long descriptions of sleepless nights and filled bookcases.

Just So Stories Set : For Little Children

Just So Stories - Rudyard Kipling, Peter Levi The simple and childish naivety of these stories is truly endearing. I love how Kipling uses his fanciful imagination to explain the origin of the well-known animals, and I think every child will be loving it as well.
My favorite story was "The Cat that Walked by Himself", which illustrates the cunning nature and solitary confinement of every cat who has ever walked upon the earth.

The subtle elegance and whimsical feeling of Kipling's India will forever fascinate me, as it combines magic, hopeful realism and simplicity.
