    1. This was a cute little story about a kid who breaks the rules in order to do something good; a story we have all heard of at least once in our life times. I personally loved this story and thought it was nice compared to the other stories that I had read by Kipling.


    2. Wee Willie Winkie is a collection of 16 Kiplings short stories collected together in 1895. Most of the stories originate in three booklets of short stories published in 1888. The stories are grouped into three sections corresponding to these booklets, with a couple of extra stories added at the end together with a short play. The stories mainly belong in the period in which Kipling was in India, with consequent Indian influences. All are well written, but special mention belongs to 'Only A Subal [...]


    3. Really disliked this collection of stories. Don't know if this is a kids book - it's like "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas" which I didn't like. A childish style which doesn't grab me. Didn't finish it. Was the nursery rhyme a precurser to this or did it come after?


    4. This book of Kipling's short stories, collected in 3 booklets published together in 1895, are set in late 19th-century British-controlled India. Many of the stories are about illicit love affairs (and so earning a 3- rather than 4-star rating from me), told in the sedate style of Victorian-era English literature, and are certainly not intended for little children; an exception among the lot are the "Wee Willie Winkie" short stories that concern the life of a six-year-old British lad living in In [...]


    5. A very fun book to read. On one side a very empirical book in tone, but, that is a product of the time it was written. Quite an adorable little story revolving around childhood, innocence and the military.


    6. “How the Pride of the Regiment Changed his Name” Set during the Raj, when Britain’s Imperialistic philosophy earnestly tried to convert all native peoples into good Victorian citizens, this short story is charmingly told by the Great White Literary Hope, and quaintly illustrated in 3 colors by Veva Storey. A blond, six-year-old urchin--christened Wee Willie Winkie by an adoring regiment--has the knack of giving adults nicknames—which stick; his favorite is a subaltern whom he names Coppy [...]



    7. The short stories in this book is filled with insights and beautifully flown words. I read it way way back in the year 2001. I still remember the stories in it, etched in my mind like pictures. That will be proof enough to how memorable it is.
