What the Critics Say

"Very readable, with good characterisation and a light touch of bugeoing romance" (Leicestershire Libraries' Book of the Month)
"Here is the full range of the sometimes maligned Kipling. No one can match his cracking yarns from the Hills..." (The Observer)
"The Essential Kipling is perfect for when you want to dip in and out of an audiobook." (Daily Express)
"With any luck, this rich collection of stories, verses, songs and family letters will remind those who associate Rudyard Kipling only with that famous macho poem...that he is also a brilliant storyteller." (The Guardian)
