At the beginning of time, the animals were quite different from the ones we see today. Can you imagine a zebra with no stripes or a leopard with no spots? The first elephant did not have a trunk to swat files with. He just had a nose.

The child of the first elephant asked lots of questions. He even asked the nasty crocodile what he ate for dinner. The crocodile did not answer. He just took hold of the elephant's nose with his teeth. The crocodile had a greedy look in his eyes! Can you guess what happened next?

Read these strange and amazing stories to discover many other wonderful things about animals.

Rudyard Kipling was an Englishman who lived and worked in India about one hundred years ago. His stories about the animals of the jungle are loved all over the world.
