Boris Karloff Reads Rudyard Kipling

Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling, read by Boris Karloff

It’s Day 2 of the Boris Karloff Blogathon. And when you think of Karloff, no doubt you think of horror movies. But when you think of, say, Karloff and kids, you probably think of The Grinch. (Because I’m sure all of our readers know that Karloff was the narrator on that particular gem.) But Karloff did more than that…he recorded Rudyard Kipling’s “Just So Stories” for Caedmon. And they’re fantastic.

To illustrate this, after the jump, there’s a dramatic interpretation of “How the Rhinoceros Got Its Skin,” which I find terribly amusing.

You can snag that CD from Harper Children’s Audio here. Highly recommended.
