First edition of this collection of children's stories, which also includes "The Man Who Would Be King" and "The Phantom 'Rickshaw". The title story first appeared in The Week’s News of 28 January, 1888 and then, in the same year, as the first of the four stories in Volume VI of the Indian Railway Library. All were written during the period in which Kipling was based in India, with consequent Indian influences.
