    This was a slightly funny ridiculous graphic novel that tells how the camel got his hump...there is nothing great about this but it's a quick read.

    Reason for Reading: Graphic Spin is my favourite series from this publisher! How delighted I was to see Stone Arch Press had added four of Rudyard Kipling's "Just So Stories" to their Graphic Spin series of fairytales and folktales! Pedro Rodriguez's illustrations are comical and full of expression. The book is set up a bit like a field guide as "explorer" Kipling, introduces us to the animal pre-change and then after the tale, he again presents the new animal post-change. The story is fun and Reason for Reading: Graphic Spin is my favourite series from this publisher!

The story is fun and while it's been 5 years since I read the original it seemed to be as I remember it. That is one thing I enjoy about this series, that they replicate the original versions without watering them down. Lovely book, looking forward to reading the other one we have on hand!

    Its an excellent retelling, both the prose and the illustrations, but the excellent quality of this retelling unfortunately reveals some of the flaws of the original story. Why on earth should the camel have to work? There is no emergency, and he is breaking no contract, legal, moral, or social, to sit in the desert if he chooses. It smacks of everything complains about Kipling as Man sets about putting the whole world under his control, but told in Dahl-esque language.

The story delightful and uncomfortable at the same time - I recommend it, if only to remind people that Kipling was a both a great and deeply flawed writer.
