The Just so Stories, first published in 1902, are pourquoi stories, fantastic accounts of how various phenomena came about. A forerunner of these stories is “How Fear Came” in The Second Jungle Book (1895), in which Mowgli hears the story of how the tiger got his stripes. The Just So Stories for Little Children are a collection written by the British author Rudyard Kipling. Highly fantasised origin stories, especially for differences among animals, they are among Kipling’s best known works.
