"These twelve stories with an equal number of poems, written 'for little children', were drawn from the store of 'make believe' tales that Kipling told to his own children. All of the stories but one ["How the Alphabet Was Made"] had appeared in periodicals between 1897 and 1902, but none of the verses had been published before 1902" (Stewart). This book has the distinction of being the only one illustrated by Kipling.
