How The Camel Got His Hump by Rudyard Kipling

This book is about a camel; at the beginning of times when animals were starting to work for men the camel would not do any work. The story starts with the other animals coming to the camel and asking him to join them but the camel only replies ‘humph’ and does not join in with the rest of the hw.

The book can be a good way into a discussion about team-work and the story is easy to follow. This book could be used in year 2. I did not find the story particularly interesting however; the illustrations in the book were nice to look at. I didn’t like this story as much as a child I thought it was unfair that the camel should be forced to work for Man if he didn’t want to. I guess I always had an egalitarian view of kiipling animal world. Apr 03, Ghozlene Boukhenaf rated it liked it Shelves: I really liked this story, and the message it holds; It is not right for any one to be idle Really, only one word I can say: A short read by J.

Kipling that forms part of the Just so stories. Not the best book he ever wrote but it displays the innocence that appeals to readers both young and old. May 20, Prashansa rated it it was ok Shelves: May 04, Emma rated it really liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book is about a lazy, rude camel. The genie gave him a hump and he was forced to work for three days without eating or drinking.


What cajel my favourite part? Who is my favourite character? That is an easy question because it is definitely the genie. He is very fair. He definitely deserved it. Is there a moral to this story? The moral of this story is to not be lazy.

The camel is czmel and he ends up having to do all the work by himself and so it is better to be kind and help your friends when they ask you. Did I enjoy the book? What an amazing story this was! I loved the story. I also loved the characters in it as well. Would you recommend this book? I think this book would be suitable for year olds because the language is quite hard for younger children to understand.

Both girls and boys would enjoy this story and especially children who love animals because most of the characters are talking animals.

I would recommend it to my niece because it is a great story and teaches rudgard a lesson about laziness! Love the story, but then I’ve always loved Kipling’s Just So stories, they’re so silly and wise all at the same time. Zwerger makes an interesting choice to insert the two pages of Magic xamel the middle the section in italics, in which she explains, imitating Kipling’s voice, the drawings and the transformation by the Djinn of the camel into a humped creature.

The Djinn looks vaguely Japanese, and has a fan, too.

I would not buy this but instead get the entire book, or just read it free on Proje Love the story, but then I’ve always loved Kipling’s Just So stories, they’re so silly and wise all at the same time. I would not buy this but instead get the entire book, or just read it free on Project Gutenberg.

How the Camel got his Hump

So I have already read the typical kopling version of this book. Even his only word “hymph” sounds boring too! This time my reaction wasn’t shocking after reading it because Kipling made me reread the plot. Eudyard, nothing new in the story: Tighten up the story Lis it’s so disjointed and the magic needs better explained.

May 16, Amina rated it it was ok. The message in the last lines was good, but the story wasn’t that compelling. Very well written, quite odd and bizarre in parts, but, thoroughly enjoyable. May 16, Faizan rated it did not like it.

Nov 30, Nadin Adel rated it did not like it Shelves: A dreadful tale about a camel who hi lazy that as a result, a genie makes humps for the camel, end of story. This is dreadful for a number of reasons: The camels use it to feed and nourish because they are rudyare to live in kiipling environments of scarce resources of food and water.


That shows the greatness of The God, Allah, who created it in such perfection for us to get to know him. So they are not a curse upon it by a lame genie to go by for him and his generations. This in not just and idea for a children story telling, in the matter of fact, it is to induce this kind of mindset to make sure that the first sin is of no use to relapse it and to be forgiven, which endorse them into practicing bad deeds and encountering diverse hos and wrong doings.

Oct 28, Margaret Chind marked it as to-read Recommended to Margaret by: Jan 12, Brennan Wieland rated it liked it.

This story is a warning against laziness, and the Camel learned his lesson by getting a hump on his back after rejecting work too many times by saying “Humph”.

The whole book was rather boring and didn’t interest me much, but it is well known and I’m glad to have read it. Jan 13, St-Michel rated it it was amazing Shelves: Another classic children’s book with beautifully drawn artwork – this one being my absolute favourite of all time.
