William Henry Pratt, best known by his stage name Boris Karloff is best known for his portrayal of Frankenstein’s monster in the various early Frankenstein movies. He was a horror film icon. Here he is the kindly British story reader of Rudyard Kipling’s well-known JUST SO STORIES. On this record from 1958, there are 4 stories: The Elephant’s Child (who has insatiable curiosity), The Sing-Song of Old Man Kangaroo (who has a bit too much pride), The Beginning of the Armadillos, and How the Leopard Got His Spots. Kipling’s explanations of why these animals are the way they are. AArbor
