Description
Long ago when the world was brand new, there were many animals, but they were all very much the same. In these 11 creation tales for readers 8 to 12, the former British Poet Laureate and Whitbread–winning author of The Iron Giant explains the whimsical ways in which the whale, owl, hyena, elephant, and donkey took on their present appearance and characteristics, often with help from a very patient God. Ted Hughes read the tales from this 1963 collection to his own children, and may remind some readers of Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories. Jackie Morris contributes sumptuous full-page watercolors, as well as many smaller illustrations that are interwoven with the text.
