Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- Each book/cassette kit presents the original story in its entirety. How the Camel Got His Hump is narrated by Jack Nicholson, whose gravely voice perfectly captures Kipling's dry wit. One major problem with this recording is the abundance of long musical interludes that interfer with the smooth reading of the story. The colored-pencil illustrations are similar to Quentin Blake's marvelous line and wash cartoons for How the Camel Got His Hump (Bedrick, 1985), but are in a more polished format. Raglin's cartoonlike characters have expressive faces, and he utilizes the desert colors effectively. The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher is narrated by Meryl Streep. Although the music tends to overwhelm the narrator, and occasionally Streep's acting gets in the way of the words, this is a quality recording that follows the text exactly. The colored-pencil illustrations have a wonderful texture and are excuted in appropriately watery blues, greens, and yellows. For those who aren't Potter purists, these illustrations are quite engaging and much larger in scale, so they can be used in a group reading. There are many wonderful editions of both of these stories available, but these will be popular in any children's collection. --Karen K. Radtke, Milwaukee Public Library

Format: Audio Cassette
This story has a great moral to it as well as being very entertaining and interesting to both children and adults. The plus side of the cassette is that Jack Nicholson tells it in such a way that everyone will enjoy listening to it over and over again. The illustrations are perfect to fit the story and are great at intriguing the children. We have had this story through both of our sons and they both STILL enjoy this book. Hopefully will pass it on to the grandchildren. Tell your friends and family about this one.

A book about man making animals their slaves and then punishing the camel for not helping and giving it a hump... What a horrible story!

This is one of my favorites of all of the Rabbit Ears stories! Tim Raglin's gorgeous, colorful illustrations bring the playfulness of Kipling's tales to life with vivid visual characterizations. (Raglin also illustrated the Rabbit Ears version of "How the Rhino Got His Skin.") These same illustrations are used in the Rabbit Ears DVD and audio (CD) versions of both of these "Just So Stories," which are narrated by Jack Nicholson and have original soundtracks by Bobby McFerrin. Jack Nicholson's reading for these stories has been called "pitch perfect" and "hypnotic," and McFerrin's score is playful, as only he can be. The narration that Nicholson reads is the same text as in the book versions.
