Rudyard Kipling, in full Joseph Rudyard Kipling, English short-story writer, poet, and novelist chiefly remembered for his celebration of British imperialism, his tales and poems of British soldiers in India, and his tales for children. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907 "in consideration of the power of observation, originality of imagination, virility of ideas and remarkable talent for narration that characterize the creations of this world-famous author." How The Camel Got His Hump is one of the wonderful Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling. When the animals began to work for Man, the Camel lived in a desert because he was idle and refused to help. The Dog, the Horse and the Ox all urged him to join in their work, but he only answered “Humph!” They complained to the Man, who said he was sorry, but they would just have to work longer hours themselves. Then they complained to the Djinn in charge of All Deserts. So the Djinn went to see the Camel and told him to work, but still, all he would say was “Humph!” The Djinn made the magic that puffed up the Camel’s back into a humph and condemned him to work for three days without eating, living on his hump instead, to make up for the days he had missed. He still has his hump, he never did make up the lost time, and he still behaves badly. Featuring beautiful artwork and animated narration, this interactive story is so engaging that kids won't realize they're learning.
